What is it?
A smart assistant that controls connected devices at home and acts as a
virtual girlfriend in the form of a manga character. Targeting single office
workers and anime fans, Gatebox goes one step further in humanising
the interface than Siri or Alexa.
What difference does it make?
With 32% of households single in Japan, Gatebox is suited to unmarried
workers. Imagine a future, person-sized version of the hologram that can
fill a bedsit with human-like life.
