Polaris -mobile phone meets Robotics



iida has collaborated with Flower Robotics to create a new range of mobile phones called Polaris (Click to see image). Polaris marries mobile phone technology with robotics.

In essence Polaris is a mobile phone with the capability to remember "the details of your daily life and features the ability to learn your tastes and habits. Like a capable personal secretary, it delivers essential information when you need it, wherever you may be and with whomever you may be talking".

Though iida has successfully gestated the product, it has yet to determine the commercialization part of it (The Polaris mobile phone is just a concept model). 


iida is so confident about it that it boldly speculates that this marriage between mobile phone and technology can breed a new mobile product range in the future.
