for single people, not with people does not mean that there is no "partner", for example, can develop virtual objects.

, Japan's Vinclu, developed Gatebox, an intelligent voice device similar to Amazon's Echo and Google Home. At first glance, Gatebox nothing special, long below, so also an ordinary speaker.

", it also has the voice function like Echo, in addition to the microphone, also equipped with a camera. It controls other things in the home, such as turning off the lights and setting the alarm clock. Currently, Gatebox only supports japanese.

but if you start using it, there lived a girl …

" her name is Azuma Hikari, is the Gatebox in the virtual girl AI.

she'll tell you what the weather is like today, and remind her to take an umbrella when it rains.

", she will send text messages when you are away from work, just like friends.

" some content is also very constructive, such as home early … …

" sometimes, she will show her straightforward … &hellip

"she will wait for you to come back home, even can bring home the lights in the evening before going home, just like a real partner.

she can watch TV with you, too, if you can understand.

Azuma is not a cold personal assistant, but considerate friend, is the life partner, which is its goal. For this, Vinclu company did not conceal the company's official website description is:

we develop Gatebox not for entertainment or convenience, we want to make the role of life, accompany us to spend time together. "I want to live with my favorite character! "This is our ideal world, and we are doing it for it.".

is a straightforward manifesto.

, according to the official website, Azuma holographic effect is from the ultra short focus projector on the inside of a transparent screen projection.

", in fact, there is also a company doing similar things in china. Gowild s.viridis just launched holoera holographic projection intelligent robot of amber, but they vary greatly in shape.

", and "Gatebox" and "holoera" are different in function. The former is more partial to Echo, and can be regarded as a personification of the personal butler; the latter also adds virtual characters to develop content, although it also has speech recognition function, which can play music, play and weather, but more entertaining.

there is a problem, such as Google and Amazon, the company will introduce people to intelligent digital management of their own? At present, it should be unlikely. Compared to Microsoft, Amazon and Google three, the first two virtual assistants have names (Cortana and Alexa), and the latter doesn't (Google is certainly not). Lei Feng network learned that Google has discussed whether to rename, but one of its considerations is to try to remain neutral, after all, millions of users. So the virtual characters are unlikely, either male or female.

and startups, on the one hand, have high degrees of freedom, and on the other hand, they can make the virtual characters different. So, what do you like about the characters like Azuma? By the way, Gatebox sells for $2500 and has stopped booking.
