In a demonstration at the Ceatec, the robot responded to instruction to place a call to a person, take a pic and display the pic through the projector. The device can also communicate with the owner and make some kind of interaction. One of the interaction it can accomplish, was responding to the owner and sustain a conversation about landscape. Sharp, has not confirmed if the device has such sophisticated artificial intelligence to be actually able to argue with the owner.

Unlike normal smartphone, RoboHon, can also do a dance.
