The Polaris is part mobile phone/part robot and is the fruit of a partnership between design firm Iida and robotics company Flower Robotics.
While the form factor brings the Sony Rolly to mind, this aspires to do a lot more. The Polaris functions as a cell phone, but is also a personal organizer. It can keep a daily schedule, act as a pedometer and keep track of eating habits, exercise, and general health. After gathering that data, it provides feedback to the owner in the form of exercise and medical advice, suggested recipes and places to shop. It also offers entertainment suggestions.
