The last time we checked
in on Simon
, he was moving pretty slowly, moving some blocks from
one bin to another, and while he was creepily silent, we still had high
hopes for his future. Well, Simon’s seemingly come a long way — if
recent footage of him and his creator, Georgia Institute of Technology
researcher, Andrea Thomaz — are to be believed. Simon’s host of new
features now include voice recognition (he’s got a Stephen Hawking-style
voice of his own), facial recognition, sound localization, plus he’s
way speedier now. All of this helps Simon learn how to do things on his
own without constantly being commanded. And in case you were wondering
— Simon the robot
is no fanboy — his various software programs run on Windows, Linux,
and Mac machines. Hit the read more to view the video.
