バーチャル・ロボット「Gatebox」

Virtual Robot “Gatebox”

A virtual home robot “Gatebox” released in December 2016 has become a hot topic overseas.

Named “Azuma Hikari”, which is setup for 20 years old donuts lover, it projects a hologram in the cylinder.

Its functions are having conversations, telling the weather forecast, operating smart home devices, etc.

Dropping down percentage of dating between male and female relationships for young Japanese people, but on the other hand, single and shut-ins have become a social problem.

While there is criticism about having a virtual girlfriend (or wife) is weird and the birth rate declines, there is also an opinion that it will be comfort for a lonely person.

2016年12月に発売されたバーチャル・ホームロボット「Gatebox」が海外でも話題になっています。
「逢妻ヒカリ(あずまひかり)」という名前がついた
ドーナツ好きの20歳という設定で、
シリンダーの中にホログラムになって映し出されます。
会話ができたり、天気予報を教えてくれたり、
スマート家電を操作してくれるなどの機能があります。
日本の若い人たちは男女交際率が低くなる一方で、
引きこもりや未婚が社会問題になっています。
このようなバーチャルの恋人(または妻)を持つのは
気持ち悪い、出生率が下がるという批判がある一方で、
寂しい人の慰めになるのではという意見もあります。
