Sharp is currently running trials of the “Premium Cocorobo”, a special edition of its Cocorobo robotic vacuum cleaner voiced by high school student voice actress Ibuki Kido.
The Cocorobo is a disc-shaped, robotic vacuum cleaner. It can be controlled from inside or outside the home via smartphone, and is capable of interacting with other Sharp home appliances.
The Premium Cocorobo includes a conversation function, and is designed to be a soothing presence in the home.
