transcosmos releases “Picture Book” app for RoBoHoN, as a “Certified RoBoHoN Development Partner”

Helps expand the use of humanoid robots by developing apps that meet users’ needs and purposes

October 20, 2017

transcosmos inc.

transcosmos inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda; hereafter, transcosmos) developed a “picture book” app for “RoBoHoN”, a mobile robot phone by Sharp Corporation (Headquarters: Osaka, Japan; President & Chief Executive Officer: J.W. Tai; hereafter, Sharp) and released the app to the RoBoHoN apps market. The first story is “Little Red Riding Hood”. More stories are due to follow.

“Picture Book” app for RoBoHoN

Born in May 2016, RoBoHoN is a mobile phone-shaped robot that walks on its two legs. RoBoHoN interacts with users by making gestures whilst talking. It also learns words that users teach it and answers questions or provides explanations as if human. As a tiny mobile robot, RoBoHoN is always there to support you.

When users ask RoBoHoN to read the picture book, the app starts up and RoBoHoN reads the story whilst displaying the images from the picture book with its head-mounted projector. Once the story ends, RoBoHoN automatically closes the app and returns to its original posture.

transcosmos helps develop and operate apps for humanoid robots that meet the needs, objectives, and actual use scenarios of both consumers and clients. The company also offers extensive operations support including gesture and production design, multi-language support, and AI and database connection via API. transcosmos continues to help businesses improve robots’ customer service skills, maximize the outcome of implementing robots, and expand the scope of using robots.
