"The primary method of using RoboHon is by talking to it. The touch-screen is a secondary interface," engadget.com reported, quoting a Sharp official.

The "robot phone" has a two-inch screen on its back and features a built-in camera and projector on its face.

The arms and legs are articulated to walk and even offer up a dance if you request the robot politely.

The robot phone can take photos, call people, take memos, respond to text messages and even project photos and video from the tiny projector.

It can stand anywhere and take pictures. It has both voice and face recognition so it can distinguish between users.

Sharp is yet to reveal its price.
