Outline

This virtual home robot in the form of a 3DCG character that appears in a box when called was created using the latest production and sensing technologies. One can communicate via conversing with the character in the box, a girl named AZUMA Hikari, thanks to voice recognition technology. When out of the home, one can also use a smartphone app to have the lights and air conditioner turned on remotely by telling the robot they are coming home.
