The era of technology is experiencing rapid growth with new tools continuously providing innovative features.

One such tool is called 'LOOI,' a small desktop robot that brings your phone to life by magnetically connecting to it.

It uses the screen for animated eyes and integrates with the hardware to sense its surroundings.

The official LOOI Robot YouTube channel shared a video demonstrating how this tool works. 

It is a smart gadget that showcases its functionality by integrating with AI tools like ChatGPT for language processing.

This integration allows it to express a wide range of animated emotions and original thoughts, transitioning from joy to frustration seamlessly.

LOOI offers real functionality akin to a robot, serving as an emote avatar that allows users to explore the world from a unique perspective.

It can display call notifications, act as a clock, and even enable users to play video games. Its facial recognition capabilities allow it to detect objects and recognise faces, as demonstrated when it mentions the name of a boy sitting nearby in a video.

The showcased video also demonstrates its ability to capture moments, such as when a boy and his girlfriend hug, with LOOI capturing the moment by taking a picture.

According to official reports, the price of this robot tool in India is approximately Rs 10,755.

The robotics industry is advancing rapidly, driven by sophisticated AI language models like ChatGPT.

LOOI features a high-resolution screen, a wide-angle camera, a microphone, high-quality speakers, and supports 4G/5G/Wi-Fi.

It also includes sensors such as ToF sensors, obstacle sensors, and proximity sensors, making it a versatile tool for various applications.

In late February this year, a new robot called Figure 01 was introduced. This general-purpose robot from startup Figure AI can understand and respond to natural commands, engaging in back-and-forth dialogues to accomplish tasks such as rearranging dishes and other household chores.
