Creepy or cute? Tech fair exhibits robot companions for you and your dog

Companies are looking to technology to solve the problem of loneliness in both people and dogs – the answer: robots. Two such devices were on display at Berlin’s IFA consumer technology fair. The first is called piBo. Standing at around 16 inches it features in-built cameras and microphones to interact with users. They help read people’s facial expressions and listen to what they say. This enables artificial intelligence to recognise their moods, the company claims. It can also differentiate between different users. The robot was created by South Korean start-up Circulus. Its CEO Park Jonggun said he wanted to address the problem of those living alone.
