CES 2017 - Emotech’s Olly Is A Robot With Feelings
Meet Olly - a CES Innovation Award-Winning robot by Emotech which they claim has both “feelings,” and a “personality.” As someone who was equally amazed and terrified when watching Her, I’m going to give this device the benefit of the doubt.
The small circular device is rather minimal in design, remaining unobtrusive just like you’d expect from the likes of a bedside alarm clock. However, the outer rim folds up to present a literal ring of personality.
Powered by a proprietary “brain-inspired” AI system, Olly learns your behaviours through conversations and facial expressions presented to its microphone and camera. With this information, paired with deep learning technology, your own robot begins to change its personality to match yours - much like a Dog would.
Daily conversations will become personal to you and it will begin to learn your daily routine, letting you know of any traffic on your journeys.
What this seems to be is an Amazon Echo with potential sass (depending on the user). It’s certainly an interesting little centrepiece to the smart home, that I know will make waves once the release rolls around in the next few months.
Price is a little vague, but they claim it to be between $600 and $800.
A social life? What’s one of those? All I see is Prime Day deals…
Noticed that everybody is looking old all of a sudden? Here’s why the Russian-developed FaceApp could be a risk to your privacy…
Defying all expectations, this is a brilliant pro controller at a decent price.
E3 2019 has come and gone, leaving me with three important lessons.
Sony have just dropped some insane PlayStation Days Of Play deals!
E3 2019 is just around the corner - here are my big predictions for the show.
Google’s algorithmic search results are left to remain a largely impartial public service, but search for “CTR Calculator” and a pretty offensive result appears that seriously needs to go.
Google’s Pixel 3a is here! The “a” stands for “amazingly jaw-dropping contract deals.”
It may not be easy to see it right now, but the future will be better than you fear.
