Akiback to the Future: Today, 5 Years Ago
We were browsing in the Akihababara News archives today and came across this 5 year old article (2004/03/03) : The Robot Soldier
Totoro introduced us to a new robot called Nuvo designed by ZMP. As a reminder, it was controlled with a cellular phone or voice commands, could move like a human, and featured a camera to keep an eye on your home when were out or relay pictures a mobile phone via the Internet.
It also offered a degree of verbal communication back to its owner through a built in pre-programmed female voice!
It did have a price… 500,000 Yen (€4000).
That was 5 years ago, nice technology at the time!
