The real speaking robot
May 26, 2013
robotic music band, here is the talking robot. No, I mean really talking, not just (as we are already used to) a speaker that generates the sound.This is just an amazing piece of technology, even though it's not complete yet. After the
Professor Sawada from Kagawa University has created a mouth with a wind pipe and larynx (voice box). By manipulating the air flow and the positions of the lips, this device is able to reproduce a lot of sounds already, apart from "f" and "s". That's for the next version, as you need teeth for that. In the mean time, the system is self-learning, it learns to improve itself. It's amazing, just watch this video below.
