Furhat Robot is the product that Furhat Robotics designed to self declare at the forefront of the social robot industry. Furhat Robot is created to simulate the human characteristics of face-to-face communication. It doesn’t just talk, playing pre-configured sounds. The robot’s responses are a genuine interaction with the user, where the device shows emotions while maintaining visual contact. The selection of gestures and emotional expressions with which Furhat Robot counts are clearly manifested. The mix between design and technology allows gestures to be made without any kind of limitations.
The construction allows Furhat Robot to be configured with several different faces. Each variant allows you to create faces with unique characteristics. In addition, the head moves on three different axes, which generates the feeling that attention is maintained in the user, the surrounding environment and group interactions. The device offers the possibility of exchanging the facial modules of the Furhat Robot. The user can choose between the standard models offered by the manufacturers. And, the user also has the possibility to create custom configurations. Also can synchronise certain facets of character with each of the facial modules.
