With Buddy / Robot ‘With Buddy’ to replace scarce teachers

With Buddy
With Buddy

Robot ‘With Buddy’ to replace scarce teachers.
Big faces include artificial intelligence technology to welcome children to school and to talk to them in the morning with energetic greetings. With Buddy, who answers children's curious questions, to the questions they need to learn, will be their best friend.
With Buddy's body has a holographic beam projector, and images or images that match his learning progress are shown in holograms in 3d.
It's okay if they don't have a classroom or a blackboard. Of course, it's good outdoors.
'With Buddy' goes beyond the limits that children experience anytime, anywhere.
