Learning a language can be hard. Having a robot teach you may just be easier. TalkingRobo is a personal robot that can teach you to speak a new language, and it will even speak to you like a native speaker. The bot features speech recognition and understands natural language when you talk to it. It will even suggest what topics to talk about so you can practice. TalkingRobo also sports face recognition so it will recognize your face and understand your user profile.

The bot can also recognize images. If you show it an image of an airplane, for example, it will give you the correct pronunciation of airplane. They even threw in a Beam projector for displaying novels and watching movies, and an English dictionary and Encyclopedia. It will connect to the internet for updates and making calls, and you can use it remotely to keep an eye on your home if you like.

If all of that isn’t enough, TalkingRobo comes in several different forms. There’s a Panda design named Anthony, a robot named Samuel and more. No word on a release date yet.
