The original goal of Aiko was to help aging population to do simple tasks like make tea and coffee, tell them the weather, read a magazine or remind them to take their medication at the correct time. There are many applications for Aiko in the home, office or public places.
Dr. Le Trung is the creator of ‘aiko’, a home-made female android.
Aiko (愛子) means “beloved one” in Japanese. Dr. Le Trung wanted the world to be able to connect with her human-likeness and at the same time not feel threatened by her technology.
Aiko is the first android to react to physical stimuli and mimic pain. This technology could be applied to people born with or who have undergone amputations. Aiko is the first step towards a life-like mechanical limb that has the ability to feel physical sensations.
