Sharp Corp. on Monday released three new models of its RoBoHoN humanoid robot with a wider range of use for families and corporate clients.

The new lineup — two walking models and one that remains seated — focuses more on family users with small children, who can experience "life with robots," the company said during an event in Tokyo.

The number of apps that can be loaded on the robots will gradually increase to 46 from the current 30, the company said.
