The internet of things has given birth to a myriad of technologies that help make life a little more simple. One such technology is more of an enrichment "mini Siri" movement using avatars that materialize in the form of desktop hologram.
That is what Japanese company, Gatebox creator is hoping to bring.
This little gadget's holographic "assistant" comes to life (in a wide choice of characters) aims to help you by connecting various things like the internet and other consumer electronics around your household. For instance, it can tell you the weather as well as having the ability to turn devices in your household on and off. This little gadget recognizes the user's behavior in a variety of sensors mounted on the body. This allows the avatar to greet you in the morning, when you wake up. (How it works when you get up to relieve your bladder, I'm not sure)
I would be really interested in picking celebrities to wake me up, tell me the weather, and greet me when I walk in the door.
Well, this technology will be up for crowdfunding in the fall of 2016. What features would you like this little avatar to have? Would you buy one? If so, what price point would you be willing to pay?
