Are Robots Taking Over the World or Just Your Home?
According to USA Today, we're still years away from flying cars, but finding robots to help us with everyday chores, and maybe offer us a little companionship, might be closer than we think.
Let's take a look at some of the best robots on their way:
1. Handy from Samsung. Samsung came out with two robots. Bot Care features an AI powered companion that can recognize and respond to your behavior. Another portion of the demo run by Samsung shows the bot offering a reminder about future meetings, then displaying a tablet from the top of its head with the meeting ready to go.
2. More robots that suck. Samsung introduced the JetBot 90, what they're calling the first smart robotic vacuum. It uses light detection and ranging, a technology used in self driving cars that helps measure distance, and AI to efficiently move around your home and clean.
3. LG's robot built for COVID-19 world. The five foot tall robot has an array of three ultraviolet lights on each side that disinfect areas as it drives itself throughout the room. It's light detection and ranging sensors follow the room's dimensions and can disinfect a room in 10 to 12 minutes. (I want this robot)
4. Pet robot. Are you ready to have a robot as a pet? The Moflin from Vanguard Industries is an AI pet the company claims possesses emotional capabilities that evolve like living animals. It's furry and boasts its own personality like a real pet. Here's the best part, no messes to clean up in your house. (USA Today)
