The ‘I-Fairy’ robot — obviously from Japan

I-Fairy japan

According this funky machine translation Japanese news source, the DSO, the “I-Fairy” receptionist robot from Kokoro Company debuted the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada on Jan. 7, 2010. The I-Fairy is meant to be a receptionist or a guide at museums as funded by Japan’s National Institute Advanced Industrial Science and Technology.
Why call it a “Fairy”?
The “I” in I-Fairy stands for “Intelligent”, “Information”, and “Icon”, and the robot’s futuristic design is based on the image of what they call a “lovely fairy.”
