The newest member of the Hanson robot family, Han, is just extraordinary. Making his debut at the Global Sources Electronics Fair in Hong Kong -- one of the largest electronics fairs in the world -- the Frubber-faced fellow was the belle of the ball.

 

Mounted on a stationary clear body, through which viewers can see Han's electronic guts, the robot's face is the point of contact for interaction. It's programmed with pattern recognition software that, paired with a variety of cameras in its eyes and chest, allow the robot to recognise and interact with the person in front of it.

Google's Android Wear software will let you leave your phone at home (if there's Wi-Fi)





The search giant announces a handful of new features, including new capabilities that make a watch run independent of a phone, all ahead of the Apple Watch's launch on Friday.





Google announced new updates to Android Wear, including Wi-Fi capability.




Google wants to make smartwatches less dependent on smartphones.



 

For now, to use most smartwatches, you need to connect the device to your smartphone and keep your phone nearby. That's no longer going to be necessary for wrist-worn devices powered by Google's Android Wear software, the company said Monday. Instead, the devices will let you connect your watch to a Wi-Fi network and receive updates about emails and upcoming calendar appointments directly over the Internet.

 

You'll still need to allow your watch to pull information from your phone -- and have your phone connected to a cellular or Wi-Fi network -- but then you'll be able to receive notifications, send messages and use apps on your watch. That's no matter where your phone is -- and your phone and watch don't have to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
