Robotic solutions have been showing up on the consumer goods market for some time but recent innovations are pushing them with even more vigor into our homes as seen with the Sony Xperia Hello Robot. Positioned as a home assistant that will help to streamline the user experience, the robot is able to be spoken to thanks to voice command functionality. This means that users can simply call out to the robot by saying, "Hiperiaia!" (which translates to "Hi Xperia!") to gain access to all of the functionalities it offers.
The Sony Xperia Hello Robot is set to launch in Japan at a cost of $1,300 and can snap photos, take Skype calls, offer information on the status of family members, offer reminders and even check traffic conditions.
