Gatebox Hologram Communication Robot: Siri 3D

Have you ever wondered what is going to replace the likes of Siri, Cortana, and Alexa? You may be looking at their next logical stage – this holographic digital home assistant.

Japanese startup vinclu Inc. is showing off a concept video for a holographic assistant called Gatebox. For its first incarnation, it projects a hologram named Azuma Hikari. Azuma will wake you in the morning, greet you when you get home from work, and communicate with your other smart devices in your home. Use her to turn on your TV, adjust your thermostat, play your music, etc. The possibilities are endless. If Amazon Echo had this kind of personality, it would have sold even better.

Since this is a Japanese invention, I’m sure we can expect some perverted options too, like watching a nude version of hologram dance and other creepy stuff. It will be interesting to see what happens with this device at any rate. It sounds like its creators may launch a crowdfunding campaign later this year, so you could soon have your own holographic virtual assistant.
