First on deck is Sharps RoboHon, a half phone and half robot that takes the phrase ‘Android Smartphone” to another level. Sharp introduced this creation at the Ceatec Show in Japan, a 19.5cm robot that can take calls, respond to a user’s voice and even project videos. It’s a fully functioning smartphone with a touchscreen embedded in its back, so it can run apps, make calls, send text messages and all the other stuff you’d associate with a mobile device. It can also walk around, get into conversations, dance to music and crouch down to project videos out of its face onto flat surfaces.
