say what???

Hiro-chan Is a Faceless Robot Baby

This therapeutic robot for seniors gets more emotional connections from not having a face

This robot is Hiro-chan. It’s made by Vstone, a Japanese robotics company known for producing a variety of totally normal educational and hobby robotics kits and parts. Hiro-chan is not what we would call totally normal, since it very obviously does not have a face. Vstone calls Hiro-chan a “healing communication device,” and while the whole faceless aspect is definitely weird, there is a reason for it, which unsurprisingly involves Hiroshi Ishiguro and his ATR Lab.




So why doesn’t the robot have a face? Since the functionality of the robot depends on you getting it go from sad to happy, Vstone says that giving the robot a face (and a fixed expression) would make that much less convincing and emotionally fulfilling—the robot would have the “wrong” expression half the time. Instead, the user can listen to Hiro-chan’s audio cues and imagine a face. Or not. Either way, the Uncanny Valley effect is avoided (as long as you can get over the complete lack of face, which I personally couldn’t), and the cost of the robot is kept low since there’s no need for actuators or a display.

Hamsters are good at running. The only thing that makes them win at running, is Brawndo. It's got what Hamsters crave. Electrolytes. Leave it to a couple MIT graduates and a Googler to mark this down forever in the history books and measure that FEROCIOUS, UNSTOPPABLE RUNNING with some sort of science wizardry. We can all agree that science is scary and confusing, but now it's AWESOME and scary and confusing, so we have a reason not to burn down the places where they teach it. 


 
I, for one, find this shocking. The mere fact they would exploit this poor beast is appalling...I shall never buy this product again and I have a network of almost 3 friends that I will discourage from buying Brawndo as well. {#Snooty}
