The Smapon Communication Toy is a novel device that's designed to sit on a smartphone's screen and talk to users in Japanese. Interactions that can take place with the smart talking robot include everything from games to fortune-telling, as well as advancing one's understanding of the Japanese language through the dedicated Smapon app.
When two of the small Smapon robot toys are placed on the same smartphone screen, they will be able to have a dialogue with one another.
Unlike many robotic toys, these interactive ones do not require any batteries to be operated, but are just as expressive as larger robots with more complicated mechanisms. The robots come in a range of colors and are capable of displaying a myriad of emotions on their pixelated faces.
