But they can have a virtual partner Gatebox.

Gatebox is a Japanese response . The main difference is that the device shows the owner of a virtual character living in a transparent flask. Her name is Azuma Hiraki, and have it in your house for $ 2,700 by purchasing the device Gatebox.

Like other domestic assistants, Azuma Hiraki can tell you the weather and anything else. But as you can see, this character is much more humanized. Gatebox equipped with a display that will show you the girl and also the microphone and camera, by which it will monitor the user.

The company that manufactures the Gatebox, makes it clear that the device is not only designed for smart home control, but in order to become a real companion and friend in communication. Azuma is positioned not as a helper but as a friend that closed the Japanese will be able to find a common language.
