Ever wanted a robot + phone mashup? Meet Sharp’s RoBoHoN

(KHON) – Sharp has developed what may be the cutest smartphone, ever. RoBoHon is a smartphone mashed up with a robot.

Just like any other smartphone, it can make phone calls, send email, remember your schedule, and answer your questions.

Unlike your phone, it can also walk, dance, act as your cameraman, and become a mini theater.

At 7.5 inches tall and a little under a pound (13.7 ounces), RoBoHon isn’t a device you’ll easily slip into your pocket.

Sharp did not release a price, and at this time, it appears it will be only released in Japan.

After all, RoBoHon only speaks Japanese.

CONCEPT
RoBoHoN is a phone you have never seen before.
A phone in human shape.
A phone that you feel like talking to.
A phone that also wants to know you.

To hear what you hear,
To see what you see,
To share the same dreams.
That is little RoBoHoN’s big dream.

Don’t you want to take RoBoHoN with you everywhere?

Heart moving phone
