【Our Vision】

The rise of AI systems and robots in all facets of our lives is now imminent. May it be through smartphones or intelligent home devices, our living environment continues to change day by day. We look at the future with an open mind and we embrace the positive changes robots will bring to our everyday lives, these changes will come with a price but it is up to us to make the difference in this new society. We want to be part of it, and you can too!

Let's work together to make this world a better place and forge a society where robots are not ostracized but beloved.

【 Enjoy your life to the fullest 】

Everyone is its own special little snowflake, and we all have different lifestyles and deal with our emotions in different ways. Communication robots equipped with artificial intelligence, facial recognition and behavior pattern recognition are better equipped than humans to deal with the wide range of lifestyles people have.

Forgetful at times? One thing robots are especially good at is memory! They never forget anything, and there is a special place for you in their memory space.

Do you want to keep an eye on loved ones? Too busy to be always present? Robots can be a good substitute to look over for loved ones, monitoring their status making sure they are well, and always allowing you to stay in touch with them.

The development of such communication robot is already at hand. MJI's robots are somewhat like a family and friends at time. Always there to offer the best of themselves,
and make this loving tie between humans and robot grow every day!
