A year after, Odyo Robotics, one of the most advanced robotics companies invented a robot in the hope of helping people ease their anxiety through music. The first model is Odyoboy, a 7-inch robot that plays music, dances and has the ability to detect emotions. The intelligent robot plays music depending on its owners’ mood and behavior. The invention was well received. Wanting to tap the affluent market, Odyo Robotics created an improved model. A bigger and more expensive model of Odyoboy was soon released. The robotics company offers 7-inch, 12-inch and 18-inch variants to cater to the growing market. It added significant features including digital and analog music. By the year 3082, the invention had seen an increased demand as it proves to be effective in helping people cope with mental health problems. Different industries offer brand collaboration and produce accessories and clothing for different Odyoboy variants.
