Japan’s Sharp Introduces Talking Robot Vacuum Cleaner – The Cocorobo

Japanese electronics giant Sharp said Tuesday it had created a robot vacuum cleaner capable of recognising and responding to simple voice commands in several languages.

The Cocorobo understands dozens of phrases such as “good morning”, “clean the room” and responds differently “depending on the cleaning situation”, Sharp said in a statement.

It will also update owners on the battery level, when the dust collector needs emptying and such and even has a camera to take snaps of areas that need cleaning.
