At an exhibition of consumer electronics CES 2018, Honda introduced the robot 3E-A18, with a digital face that can smile, cry or doze.
The robot is designed to interact with people, especially with children. His digital face can show a variety of playful expressions, including anger and excitement. When 3E-A18 is sad, his face turns into a bubble with blue water.
The robot is covered with a soft rubber texture, a nice touch, so that it can be hugged. 3E-A18 moves on one wheel. Honda suggests that the robot can be used in airports and shopping centers. 3E-A18 is able not only to express emotions, but also to read human emotions.
