other side of the screen.

your character to recognize your movements and actions. She wakes you up in the morning and she warmly
welcomes you as you come home in the evening. By connecting to the internet and to electronic appliances,
she let you know the weather conditions and she turns on the TV as you come out of shower. She is your
partner and helps you in your daily life.
