Among key features, Kadecot can:

・run on Android

・operate multiple appliances at the same time

・make a remote controller of its own

・make story games, a feature suited to personification

・fine-tune the language specification with JavaScript

The demonstration version of Kadecot, which is freely available with AndroidTM applications, includes a number of applications to run home appliances, such as MoeKaden and Carimo. Sony CSL is planning to introduce a server that will allow users to exchange original applications on a network, from which they can choose for customization for personal use.
