Huggable robot converts voice into pulse
Washington: A Japanese robot designer has invented a plush, mono-legged figure that serves as a medium of interacting remotely with people.
Just insert your smartphone into a pocket inside the Hugvie Robot’s head, designed by Hiroshi Ishiguro, and call your loved one.
Another gadget inside the robot converts the voice of your beloved into vibrations that the hugger can feel.
Another vibrating device inside the Hugvie mimics the pulse of a heartbeat.
“The vibrations can be customized to allow for softer or stronger pulses as they respond to the volume and strength of the voice on the other end of the line,” Discovery News quoted the press release as saying.
