Saya Goes to School


Saya was originally created by Hiroshi Kobayashi at the University of Tokyo as a service bot that could replace workers such as secretaries. It took about 15 years for him and his team to develop the humanoid bot that is now being tested as a teacher. Saya can speak different languages, perform roll call, set tasks and makes facial expressions, including anger, while doing so. We wonder how long she can perform before some nasty kid shoots a spit wad at her.
