I-Fairy Plays Receptionist

ifairy.JPG

The I-Fairy made an appearance at the recent CES 2010. She can be used for a guide or receptionist as she has voice recognition and goes into her routine when approached by humans. She comes with text-to-speech and motion software and has a limited 9º freedom in her head and arms, although her wrists, fingers, knees, and toes must be moved manually. Perched atop a pedestal, the Tinkerbot costs ¥ 6,500,000 (~$70,000.)
