Junko Chihira is the follow-up to another Toshiba robot called “Aiki Chihira,” which started working as a receptionist at a Japanese department store in April. The technique used by Aiki Chihira was developed by Hiroshi Ishiguro, a robotics researcher at Osaka University.
Like Aiki Chihira, Junko Chihira currently only accepts predefined, preset voice commands. But by 2017, Junko Chihira will be able to get voice recognition, which will be able to answer all kinds of questions from tourists.
In addition, Junko Chihira can speak one more language than his predecessor, namely Chinese.
Not only is Junko Chihira designed to look human-like, but the details are realistic and more realistic than previous products. According to a press release issued by Toshiba, “she” is 5 feet 5 inches (about 1.65 meters) tall, 26 years old this year, and her birthday is June 1.
