The emotive robot
Meet Furhat. This social robot has a customisable human face to create unique personalities. The robot can also display complex expressions and voice a wide-array of high-quality text-to-speech voices in over 30 languages. What is more, a camera and microphones give Furhat outstanding situational awareness. This EU-funded project by the same name will create a completely new market for social robotic solutions. By 2023, it aims to have commercialised some 10 000 Furhat robots. Furhat Robotics, the Swedish company behind the project, has already sold more than 80 Furhat robots to more than 50 customers, including Disney, Swedbank and Deutsche Telekom.
