Fujitsu Laboratories Develop Robot Teddy Bear

Though it resembles a normal teddy bear, it has incorporated the latest sensors and ICT technology facilitating them to interact with the users.

The sensors help the robots to show appropriate responses including body language, mimicking human facial expressions and gestures to various extrinsic factors. Small cameras are incorporated into the noses of these robots which will help them to identify humans automatically and will react by facing them. The robots have a voice synthesizer for replicating the voice of a boy aged between 3 and 5 years. This voice is amplified by means of an in-built speaker for offering vocalization in concurrence with the activities of the robot.

The robot teddy bear can demonstrate around 300 movements like lifting arms in happiness, seeing downwards during sad moments, kicking its feet when it gets annoyed etc. Additional movements can be included via PCs using an USB port. Hence they can be effectively employed in medical centers as physical exercise or game instructors. After completing  trial experiments, the robot will be released in the market for offering various robotic treatments.
