Nuvo, a device developed and manufactured in Japan, is the first robot for everyman. To enable Nuvo to be deployed in all kinds settings, engineers emphasized small size and low weight.
Nuvo is controlled via voice recognition, command per Internet or cell phone, and remote control. It can tell its master what time it is, play music or take pictures, and then send the snapshots to its master’s cell phone. Plans are now in the works to develop Nuvo into “the perfect personal agent.”
