Toyota, the popular car making company, has announced a new invention that is planned to be released next year in Japan. It’s name is Kirobo Mini. Kirobo is a small 4-inch tall robot with an amazing ability. It can speak and engage in conversations with people. Using its facial recognition technology, it can be seen asking a sad-faced woman what was wrong. Along with the ability to read facial expressions, Kirobo can also remember your likes and dislikes, as well as the places it has traveled with you. Additionally, the Kirobo Mini can be linked to cars and most at-home devices in order to spice up your daily conversations. The Kirobo Mini`s main role is to become a companion for the holder. It is planned to be released in Toyota dealerships in Japan for about $400. No plans of releasing it in other countries have been reported. Furthermore, the Kirobo Mini can only speak Japanese. However, don’t let this crush your dreams of having a Kirobo of your own and make sure to stay tuned to the Panther Page for more news on the remarkable robot.

    This is both fascinating AND frightening! If this little robot was glowing in the dark in my room I would be scared to death. Great job Jazzy! 🙂

    This is what I need so I can be happy everyday, it is also something that can motivate me. Therefore, having this little robot can help me through school because it can make me happy when I´m stressed or sad.

    This is adorable, its like a teddy bear except more fragile and hard like a rock, or like a tiny, portable shia la bouf, but lets hope they dont cause a rebelion because that would be in combination of horrifieing and cute.
