Toyota’s Tiny Robot

Kirobi Mini

Kirobi Mini from Toyota

Toyota recently introduced a new robot called Kirobi Mini which you will be able to pre-order later this year in Japan.

The cost will reportedly be about $390.

Kirobi Mini will have a camera, microphone, Bluetooth and connect to a smartphone. It can responds to voices, but cannot recognize you.

General manager of the project Fuminori Kataoka stated

Toyota has been making cars that have a lot of valuable uses. But this time we’re just pushing emotional value.

The general idea for Kirobi Mini is a small companion robot you can take with you while driving.
