Cost is estimated at 200,000 Yen.

The robot can interface with your house appliances and connect to the internet.

The child’s voice might be a bit eeire for some people, but does well in clarity.
You may notice some slowness in response at first. It has a 100 word recognition range, but it can be extended to 10,000.

Hey, it’s still new.

Omar Abudayyeh, a MD/PhD student at the Broad Institute, is part of a team working on a new application for CRISPR technology. Rather than using it to edit genomes, as it has been used in the past, the team is using the technology to detect viruses, bacteria, and cancer at attomolar levels, allowing for highly accurate diagnosis with small amounts of sample. Check out Omar’s 2017 TEDMED Hive Talk to learn more about how this simple and inexpensive diagnostic tool has the potential to make a big impact.
