Whether it’s about helping around the house with chores and small, but yet so useful item manipulating, about children teaching, or gardening, 2015 robots have become such a great discovery.
In Las Vegas, the Consumer’s Electronic Show is on fire. The robots do not resemble those in SCI-FI movies but can make your life so much easier. Good prices for the original products (about $1000 for a very developed robot that can really be of use around the house), or twin versions for those who can’t afford much (the Ukrainian copy of the same robot for $399).
The most loved one is South Korea Furo-I Home, a robot with face-recognition and could come to resemble a family member. It detects temperature differences and can take care of your smart devices, which are connected to the internet. Commands like switching the lights on and off, calling an elder in order to not forget the pills he has to take, video-recording certain things and calling the alarm if needed, are included.
The Droplet is a sprinkler-robot also connected through the internet which can really help you with gardening. This wonderful mechanical creature waters your plants that are found less than 15 cm away from each other.
The grill fever is on ? Meet the brush Spinning Grillbot – it saves every Sunday and so much time and effort in cleaning your grill after a cook-out. The chief executive, Ethan Wood says that it took 2 years of hard work and research. Quality family time must have really motivated this team, because the visitors in Las Vegas are fascinated by it.
Canadians brought to the Show the Spin Master robot, especially created for children who can build and program it to move in different ways, and also record and playback different voices. Also for children, the small Bocco is a robot that replaces the conventional telephone for small kids who can’t use one. With only two buttons, it records messages and sends them to smartphones that have the Bocco application installed into them.
Let’s not forget about cleaning ! A small but very useful tool is the Atomobot helps air purification inside homes.
