I Am Guessing We Have All Seen The Scene,

in Star Wars where a holographic figure delivers a message, 

well it appears we are one step nearer to that being a reality in your own home, Gatebox is a virtual home hologram that will allow you to live with your favourite character. “It’s every otaku’s dream come true,” says the company, who is developing a miniature roommate that combines artificial intelligence with holographic technology,

that is if you dream is a a blue-haired anime girl called Hikari who will be able to recognise different patterns in your life and respond to them, like when you wake up in the morning or when you come home at night, She’ll even text you during the day with endearing messages like “I miss you” or “see you soon!”

it’s unclear exactly how technologically capable Hikari will be but the promotional video indicates that she might be able to connect to your smart-home infrastructure and do things like turn on the lights before you get home,

Gatebox won’t be available until December of 2017, but you can pre-order, and when it does, anime lovers will have to pay 298K yen (at today's rate £2,045 our $2,527) all plus taxes,

the promotional video above, all seems a bit unnecessary really, Diana keeps me so happy why would I want a blue-haired anime girl? and no I am not on commission!
