Furhat Robotics from Stockholm has launched a new shocking human robot capable of natural conversation and realistic facial expressions. Possibly the only downside is that he only has a head. But so what, the head is enough for talking!
It looks like a smart speaker with a realistic head and neck. And do you know what the best thing is? You can select the face according to your choice! It will be projected on the head, which is designed to respond in the same way as ordinary living people.
Does it remind you of anything? Maybe talking to Napoleon in the movie Girl on a Broomstick? It seemed like nonsense, but now it is possible. Shocking? A little bit.
This robot can adapt to any environment. You can choose the face of anyone you know or yourself, including your voice!
The truth is that it wasn‘t as company for lonely people. But soon people may meet them in a business or work environment. The company that developed these heads claims they are able to work with customers. So maybe they will in the near future sit behind the counter at the post office.
