Good News for People that are Everyone!Good News, You guys! Perhaps God does exist:
The QRIO Robot! Pronounced, "Curio"
Not the best pitch, but in a few years...
Awesome in Chile too!
"QRIO knows your voice. It can determine who is speaking by analyzing the sounds it hears with its built-in microphones. Call to it, and if it knows you, it will notice you and respond. If it doesn't know you but mistakenly thinks it does, you can teach it your voice and it will remember you..."
"QRIO was designed to understand spoken words. The seven microphones in its head identify a person's voice and the direction from which it is speaking, and even pick out the words it says. QRIO can even understand the voices of unidentified speakers. It knows tens of thousands of words already, but can also learn new ones..."
"QRIO can have an entertaining conversation with you. It analyzes the words you speak using its voice recognition technology, and responds in its own words. It will ask what sort of things you like and remember them, getting to know you better all the time. Since it uses those memories in future conversations with you, the more information it has the more full and natural a conversation you can enjoy. QRIO knows a wide variety of things, and loves to talk about them. As it hears the things you like, it will come to match its conversation to you."
"QRIO has its own emotions -- and expresses them in a variety of ways, such as through its movements, actions, sounds or colors [Colors! Just like humans!]. Sometimes, since it has its own emotions, it might not do something you ask it to do [Haha! Sounds annoying!]. It's all part of the mystery of QRIO."
Unfortunately it has been discontinued for now due to the estimation that for a consumer to purchase it would cost around 65,000 dollars. But i would've gotten it! So Here is a farewell video. I am not sure if the singing is from the robots or not, because it sounds like it could be and they are supposed to be able to sing. But in anycase its one of best songs ever and a little sad:
