POMI has Four Senses

Korean researchers from the ETRI (Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute) have produced a bot that can see, hear, touch, and smell. POMI (Penguin rObot for Multimodal Interaction) can move his eyes and lips, and utilizes LED lighting and built-in scent sprays for facial expressions. We figure that must be close to aromatherapy. The robot can move his arms, express emotion, and has a ka-thumping heart. Since ETRI can also talk through his speaker, we wonder if he can smell those tomatoes we bought and let us know if they are edible.
