“The focus of the research was not to explore the potential of technological intelligence, but rather to explore the limitations of human attention and emotional resilience” he said.
The Wrist Robot provides its owner a service, but at the same time it is dependent on his influence.
Based on various information like preferences, appointments, stressful situations, environmental aspects, etc. the robot is able to react to various types of situations and serve its owner with information.
