Sony’s new robot Xperia Hello will be shipped on November, 18th. Unfortunately only in Japan so far.
The Xperia robot runs Android and responds to voice, gestures, and facial expressions. It can take photos, make Skype video calls, check the status of family members both inside and outside the house, provide reminders, and alert you of news, weather changes, and road traffic.
Hello’s price tag is around $1,300; which is not really cheap.

Do you still remember Sony’s Aibo or Sony’s Qrio?
