Japanese robot company launched a baby robot "Hiro-chan": the face looks a little ghastly

By  Waldo Judge 2020-01-14 1979 23

Japan is one of the most aging countries in the world. To fill the emotional gap of empty nesters, Japanese robot company Vstone has launched a baby robot, Hiro-chan, which aims to provide the elderly with a sense of emotional connection. Strictly speaking, the technology of this robot is not high-tech, what Hiro has to do is to make a happy sound when people hold it, and a sad sound when people leave it. What is really impressive is its face-a blank.

Hiro's face is round, like an enlarged marshmallow, without any facial features, although it does not look terrible, but there is always a strange feeling. But, according to Vstone, the feature that can cure empty nesters is what makes the robot baby so-called "shameless".

Its working principle is also quite simple, and a built-in chip can detect whether Hiro is being held in order to switch between happy and sad sounds. Hiro doesn't have a face because it may contradict this function. If you sew a happy face, it may be even more creepy when it starts to cry. In addition, Vstone also found that in product testing, Hiro's "faceless design is as popular as a faceless design."
