Tiny hologram breathes new life into this virtual assistant (Tomorrow Daily 300)

77

Welcome back to the show this week. We’re back after a short holiday weekend, and we’ve got a magical pair of stories to discuss today. Gatebox’s hologram assistant Azuma Hikari isn’t just adorable; she’s also super helpful (she can connect to and control IoT-compatible devices) and friendly (she’ll greet and say goodbye to you when you come and go). Then, we talk about the robotics team at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition and how they turned their ATLAS robot into a wonky butler to help make their coding updates more fun.
