Korean researchers have developed POMI, a penguin-looking robot that is able to see, hear, touch and smell.
Pomi is programmed to answer users through voice-recognition technology and various sensors allow it to recognise and locate humans.

I like the idea of a penguin robot. it would be so fun to have a penguin pal that can respond back to things I say or do… but this design I’m not sure I like. Its cute and scary at the same time. What do you think?
