Say hello to my Nubot

Say hello to my Nubot

Employees of a surveillance technology company in Japan created the ‘Nubot‘ – a small robot doll that can hold a smartphone. If someone from far away calls in, his or her face can be seen on the display and the voice can be heard. The calling person can even make the doll move sideways, bow and make it do other movement by using the dial interface of skype as a remote controller.

Why it matters

Communication had been restricted to phones and videoconferencing. Are we now witnessing the first steps towards a more remote controlled communication shape – using avatars that can move in real time? Will this mean that people could be completing physical tasks in two places at once?
