M3-synchy robot

Early last year, the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute (ATR) lifted the veil from the M3-synchy, where it was constructed via the robotics company known as Vstone. Specially designed to be tiny and portable, it delivers image and voice recognition functionality. At this moment, Vstone still sells the M3-synchy, although they do take orders from a rather similar product known as the RPC-S1.

The specifications alone are more or less identical, where it measures around 30cm tall, comes with 17 degrees of freedom, and will feature an embedded PICO 820 computer, a solitary 1.3-megapixel camera, a couple of microphones, and a speaker. Just like a chameleon, the RPC-S1′s eyes is able to move independently from the head, allowing them to be used to study gaze direction whenever it interacts, clearly setting it apart from every other small and inexpensive platform.
