Hikari appears floating inside of the device, brought forth by projector – she’s literally a hologram! The name Hikari translates to “Light”, playing on the futuristic theme. She’s very much aware of what’s going on around her, as she’s equipped with Cameras, Microphone, Motion sensors and even temperature sensors to feel if it’s hot or cold – instead of a lifeless voice on your phone like SIRI, Hikari actually cares about you.
Hikari recognises your Voice & Face!
All those sensors mean that she can actually recognize your voice and face, she won’t talk to any random person! She’ll chat with you as you wake up in the morning and keep you company throughout the day. She can appear on your phone through a linked mobile phone app which can remind you of certain tasks or things in your calendar. With an HDMI connection, she can even find her way onto your TV.
Hikari is one of a kind character at the moment, but there’s a big likely-hood that other characters will immerge for personalised experiences and personal preferences. Digital characters such as Hatsune Miku has held a massive audience for years in Japan, being a completely digital singing character, brings thousands of people to her concerts every year.
