"Smart Doll Plus
It gives me great pleasure to announce our new product — Smart Doll Plus — the future of home appliances!
Smart Doll Plus is a 120cm tall robotic android designed by myself Danny Choo right here at Culture Japan HQ in Tokyo.
Smart Doll Plus has functionality to walk around on her own and pickup objects which she can recognize with her built in AI.
Smart Doll Plus is also connected to the Internet 247 meaning that she has access to any information that you require of her.
We are also working with IFTTT to enable Smart Doll Plus to connect to a plethora of home devices such as Dropcam and Nest which expands her home security management capabilities.
As some of you may know, I've been trying to develop a robotic version of our 1/3 scale (60cm) tall flagship product Smart Doll for a while now.
Our development process is done in stages called "T" — our very first version was T1, second version was called "T2" and so on...
As some of you know, I also do work for the Japanese government and after networking with other ministries, I was specifically forbidden to sell this technology to any military body.
I do however believe strongly that humans have the right to defend themselves so I have programmed Smart Doll Plus to also be able to deal with burglars but deal with them in such a manner that they do not come to harm — I felt it was important to obey the 3 laws of robotics which are:
A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
In order to protect these laws, I have given Smart Doll tools that would only tickle a burglar such as pepper spray, 1000 volt stun guns and portable flame thrower."
