This is all implemented and can be realized with common technology. However, we are especially interested in developing the social skills of the robot. Present-day, robots are rather unemotional and cold, but we want the robot to be a companion of people, that can show us something for example or we will ask it something and it’ll give us an explanation.” 16:32
