Augmented reality (AR) learning
Embedded AR and graphical identification technology help improve young learners' general knowledge and introduce them to artistic interests such as painting. And by using the screen on Honeybot's friendly face, kids can get up close for a 3D look at a variety of optional interactive sessions, such as in the Aquarium Park or the Yolk Park.
Simulated Life scene
Honeybot is designed as a cyber buddy to accompany kids around the house -- in the living room, dining room, bedroom, and bathroom -- to help them pick up good and healthy daily habits with things like eating, showering and sleeping regularly.
While learning how to take care of their buddy, kids shape their own behavioral habits and learn a strong sense of responsibility. Honeybot also helps kids understand why it is important to be a good eater especially when they need to feed their buddy.
Voice Changing Live Talk
One of Honeybot's most unique features is a voice changing function that allows parents to alter their voices into that of Honeybot's. This way while children feel like they are talking to the robot, they are actually communicating with their parents.
Parents can also use their smartphones to send messages to their kids through Honeybot, and these messages can also include facial expressions for livelier child-robot-parent interaction.
By using the Honeybot app, parents can choose from more than 200 audio and video learning materials and one-click synchronize with Honeybot.
Interactive Multi-Screens and more
Honeybot can connect with televisions and projectors to make it possible for children to play exercise games, such as table tennis, on the big screen.
It also uses a number of inbuilt security measures and sensors to keep the house safe and secure when nobody is home. Known as 'patrol mode', the technology behind it is a closely guarded company secret.
"Honeybot has so many fascinating features that we have spent years developing," said Zhongliu Chen, the CEO of HuiYu. "People know HuiYu as a strong group of experienced education professionals and high-tech geeks, but we just see ourselves as a group of dads doing our best to build up a better childhood for the kids we love."
