It stands only 19.5 centimeters tall and weighs in at a mere 390 grams: RoBoHoN, the world’s first mobile robotic cell phone. Tomotaka Takahashi, internationally renowned robot developer, CEO of Robot Garage, and University of Tokyo professor, created it in cooperation with SHARP. As the hybrid of a smartphone and a robot, RoBoHoN offers a wide variety of features: the basic functions of a cell phone as well as camera, projector and communications system based on verbal commands. And, of course, RoBoHoN can also do what robots do: run and dance.
