Gatebox's Virtual Assistant Takes On Amazon's Alexa And Google Home 1

Vinclu I Really Need One Of These.

The future is here and it’s totally breath taking. It’s more than you could ever imagine.

A Japanese company Vinclu (“a company that makes crazy things and supports crazy people“) is now taking  pre-orders from Japan and the United States for a new interactive, artificial-intelligence driven home automation system.Called Gatebox, the new Internet-of-Things product takes on Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home.

Gatebox is targeted at young bachelors and all kinds of anime-obsessed people with the experience of “living with your favorite character.”  It’s not too large it’s just the size of a home coffee-maker, with a footprint not bigger than a sheet of A4 printer paper, the device’s main feature is a clear projection tube that displays a computer-animated avatar for the AI’s “character”.

Gatebox uses CGI to project the assistant onto the front of the device, and make it look like she’s patiently inside. Gatebox uses a camera and sensors to detect movement, as well as the owners face.

I think Vinclu is apparently working on multiple  personalities for Gatebox—which, as part of the device’s backstory, is a gateway to the dimension the characters live in used to allow them to “live” with their owner.

Gatebox interacts with its owner through its animated persona and can respond to voice interactions. It can also send and receive text messages when its “master” is not at home, interacting in some ways like a…domestic partner. And the Gatebox can also control smart-home appliances, such as lights and robotic vacuums—so when you get home from work, your holographic assistant will have the lights on for you and will have done the cleaning.

It’s quite amazing , I must say.

The first character is named Azuka Mikari. She is “a comforting female character that is great to those living alone,” according to Gatebox’s website. “She will always do all she can just for the owner.” Voiced by Japanese actress Yuka Hiyamizu, the character has her own website with a backstory manga that explains how she was invited to cross dimensions for a “homestay” with a master on Earth.

With this I think one top US company may want to purchase the Japanese Company. It’s just a matter of time.

Here’s a sneak peek of what GATEBOX looks like :
