Toshiba’s ApriPoco robot is a cute universal remote

Toshiba has been working on a cool little robot that acts as a voice gateway to just about anything in your room with a remote control. The name is derived from an Italian word that means “little by little” and it’s exactly how the robot learns.

Set him up near your TV, and as you use the remote, ApriPoco will ask you what you did. Over time the robot builds up a library of all the actions you do with the control, and connects it with your voice command.
