Sharp’s RoBoHoN Robot is Also a Mobile Phone

(i-Programmer) — Sharp’s robot RoBoHoN is also a perfectly respectable mobile phone with full LTE/3G/WiFi, a Snapdragon 400 quad ARM processor, a camera, and a two-inch touch screen. The best feature in today’s selfie environment may be its ability to walk and project an image onto a surface; it can then crouch down to get the best shot and then leans forward to project the result onto table top.

The robot is 19.5 cm tall and weighs 390 grams so it really is portable. The robot can do all of those things that a phone can. What isn’t clear is how usable its extra features due to it being a social robot will be in real life.
