[Robotech 2011] Professor Sawada’s Talking Robot

Today at Robotech 2011, Professor Sawada from Kagawa University in Japan demonstrates its talking robot, a robot capable to mimic and reproduce the natural human speech. Thanks to a clever set of different elements that duplicate human organs with the Lung/Trachea, Vocal Cords, Vocal Tract/Nasal Cavity, Professor Sawada and his team came up with a unique robot offering a natural speech reproduction.
The elements responsible for this achievement includes a regular Airflow, with Pressure and Control Valve, as well as a Resonance Tube (the Pink Fake mouth) with 8 Resonance Control Motors (Vocal Cord), a Nasal Cavity and a silicon tongue.
