Different assistants artificial intelligence like Siri and Cortana are very popular, but none can compare with the experience provided Azuma Hikari, the holographic figure within the Japanese Gatebox.
Instead of simple design with coil speakers, Gatebox has a screen and a projector that “come alive” Hikari. From the outside there are microphones cameras and sensors that detect temperature and motion so Hikari can interact with you on a more personal level, rather than being just a voice from the machine.
The result is fully interactive virtual girl who can control home appliances, recognize the voice and face and be faithful companion. In the morning when you wake up, she’ll wish you a good morning, instruct you in daily chores and greet you when you return home.
Hikari understand a lot of things, but still learns. Over time, she will be able to conduct serious talks, and when you are not at home with her you can communicate through messages. According to its creator, Taro, Hikari is a twenty-year old girl who loves to eat donuts, and that she is afraid of insects.
