The robot will make the company to the Japanese cosmonaut on the ISS
Kyrobo is not only the first talking robot delivered to the International Space Station, but the first such device in space. His main task is to keep company with the Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata, who has registered here for six months.
"Kirobo, are you used to zero gravity?" - greeted the robot Koichi. "I already get used to it. In general, without problems "- he answered. Android, the height of only 34 centimeter and weighing about two kilograms, is able to recognize human speech, constantly replenishes his vocabulary, and also has the ability to identify his interlocutor.
The development of robots engaged in the company Robo Garage at the University of Tokyo. Tomotaka Takahashi, one of the developers, notes that such robots will soon play an important role in space. For example, they can transmit orders for astronauts from the Earth, and they can also think independently to support the life and work of astronauts.
