Instead of the appearance of anime, artificial intelligence can take the masculine or feminine form, with casual or uniform clothes. Of course each model faces a different situation.

O gadget hardware has also undergone changes. Rather than being a hologram itself, the western version is more like a tablet with a 3D doll inside a tube. As a result, the product turns out to be smaller, but has the same camera and motion sensors.
