Our team has studied a lot of research material about how robots and humans interact. We designed the UI to be a friendly, approachable and communicative interface.
The UI is also designed so that you can see it from across the room. We expect that a lot of the interactions with Aido happen over voice, so the UI accommodates various possibilities of using voice, gestures and touch. The UI layer is built on top of Android, so all your Google Play Store apps will run without problems on Aido.
