Get in touch with super-simulated Japanese beauty

September, rainy morning. In an elderly home in southern Tokyo, elderly people are doing regular morning exercises: slowly raising their arms over their heads and slowly lowering them down.
In the front of the house, on a table stood the "coach": a small robot named Pallo. Pallo is about 40 cm tall, and the inventor calls him a "humanoid companion robot." After setting the program, Pallo can sing, dance, and have simple conversations with others.
"Simple" may be the most appropriate description. I wanted Pallo to tell me the weather forecast, and soon the little guy was confused. Maybe my Japanese is not good.
But humanoid robots like Pallo are just the beginning of what the inventors call an upcoming revolution.
The forefront of the revolution is located in a featureless business park outside Kyoto in western Japan. This is the hometown of some of the weirdest and most incredible humanoid robots in the world.
On the chair in the middle of the room, the beauty "Erica" sits. The host introduced us to each other. You may not be able to see it clearly in the photo, in the same room, Erica really looks like a real person. I circled her around, she would turn her head and follow me, blinking from time to time, as if she was adjusting the focus to me.
The host passed the microphone and told me that I could ask Erica a few questions. I said, "What should I ask?" The other party replied, "You can ask anything you want."
This is not entirely true. Later I found out that Erica is now familiar with about 20 topics, including her hobbies, what kind of pets she likes, and her favorite movies.
Erica told me, "I like Chihuahua best. How about you? Do you have a dog?"
I answered yes. Erica sighed with satisfaction, as if happy that we have a common hobby.
A few minutes later, I noticed that Erica's answer made several of my escorts chuckle. It turned out that she thought my Japanese was terrible and funny, and she was kidding me! This scene made me uneasy and embarrassed.
Erica’s inventor is Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro (Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro). I told her that Erica used to make me funny, and the professor laughed and asked me, "Did you try to have some negative conversations with her?" I said, "No."
The professor said, "You should try. She will definitely be very angry. We have that kind of program. We can feel very strong emotions that only humans have, and we will completely forget that she is a robot."
Professor Heishihao has ambitious plans for Erica, and he hopes to make Erica as realistic as possible. He said that there are practical reasons for this, because for a person, the best communication "interface" is another person.
"Now in Japan, we already have a talking rice cooker. It's like Alice in Wonderland-a talking rice cooker! People can accept this technology because our brains can accept the interface of sound."
For Professor Heishihao, the humanoid robot is an extension of the technological revolution that began with cavemen making stone axes.
"Humans are animals plus technology. There are two ways for humans to evolve, one is from genes, and the other is through technology. As we develop this new technology, we are also changing the definition of man. We cannot distinguish between humans and robots. . We coexist in this world."
A world full of intelligent humanoid robots may scare some people. But what about the world where the elderly no longer need wheelchairs or chair lifts, and those with spinal injuries can learn to walk again?
Professor Yoshiyuki Sankai is drawing up such a blueprint for another characteristicless business park in northern Tokyo. The company he founded was called Cyberdyne, which happened to have the same name as the company that produced biochemical robots in the future world in James Cameron's movie "Terminator".
Shanhai Jiazhi insisted, "It's no coincidence!"
The soft-spoken engineer has invested 15 years in developing a hybrid assistive limb (Hal): the world's first robotic exoskeleton controlled by the user's brain waves.
I was dubious at first. Later, Shanhai showed me an incredible set of videos.
In the first paragraph, a patient with sequelae of polio had lost leg function and could not move for 50 years. Researchers fitted him with a robotic prosthesis and placed sensors near the bottom of his spine. The sensor received what Professor Shan Hai said was the "intention command" sent by the brain along the spine. These instructions control the motion of the robotic prosthesis.
The next video shows that three days later, this patient can move the prosthesis with only intentional instructions.
How did he react when he saw his legs move again? Professor Shanhai said, "He cried."
So, can this technology also be used for paraplegics and amputees?
Shanhai smiled and clicked on another video: "This man has an amputation above the knee. You see, using our robot legs, he can walk steadily."
It is true. There is also a video where he can be seen going up and down stairs without help.
This technology is still in its infancy. The next generation of hybrid auxiliary limbs will be lighter and can be used by children. At the same time, Professor Shanhai is still studying stem cell technology so that people with severe spinal injuries can also use their robotic limbs.
This is really an amazing prospect. In the near future, bionics will no longer be science fiction? !
Nowadays, robot ○△×□▽ dolls are becoming more and more common around us. Not only can she help us solve some common sense, but also help us solve our loneliness. Nowadays, there are also very popular ○△×□▽ dolls that are almost the same. She has helped us very well. It solves the physical needs and reduces the number of rape crimes, which is of great help to our lives. Recently, a person around me bought a custom male ○△×□▽ doll. She said it was very good and helped her solve her sexual needs. Many people are currently browsing the silicone lovers website on the Internet, and I hope that the technology will become more and more developed in the future.
