Cerevo Inc. said Friday it has launched a shape-changing home projector robot that can turn ceilings, walls and floors into displays.

The Tokyo-based hardware venture firm's new robot, called Tipron, is also capable of learning where to project images, moving to those positions by itself, and returning to its charging station.

"Sci-Fi anime and movies sometimes have a scene where all walls at home are becoming digital displays ... it would be possible to re-create it in real life if actual displays are embedded" there, but it would cost too much, Cerevo CEO Takuma Iwasa said at a news conference in Tokyo.
