Toyota announced today (Oct. 3) that it will be launching a tiny robot in 2017 called Kirobo Mini, that can fit in a car’s cupholder and hold a conversation with drivers to keep them alert on long drives.
Kirobo is about 10 cm (4 inches) tall when sat in a cupholder, and apparently can maintain eye contact and gesticulate as it chats in “casual conversation” with a driver, according to a release from Toyota.
The release also says that the robot is a “cuddly companion always on hand for heart-touching communication,” even though it appears to be made out of a not-very-cuddly plastic and unlikely to be able to move you with its oratory skills.
I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.
