#CES2021: These Samsung robots should be on everyone's wishlist
With an aim to integrate Artificial Intelligence (AI) in our lives, Samsung took another step forward when it unveiled three new robots at the ongoing CES 2021. Named JetBot 90 AI Plus, Bot Care, and Bot Handy, these futuristic robots can clean the house, be your digital companion, and even pour a glass of wine. No surprises, these darlings are on our wishlist.
"Our innovations are designed to provide more personal and more intuitive experiences that express your personality. We're hard at work to bring you next-generation innovation, with AI as the core enabler, for your better tomorrow," said Sebastian Seung, President at Samsung Research.
The JetBot 90 AI Plus is a robotic floor cleaner that can empty its own dustbin automatically. It comes with a charging dock that extracts dirt from the device and packs it into a disposable vacuum bag. The robot uses LiDAR and cameras to navigate around the house. You can operate it remotely via a smartphone app and even set "no-go zones."
As the name suggests, Bot Care uses AI to recognize and respond to your behavior as well as manage your routine. It memorizes your schedule and habits, and can send reminders as you go about your day. Design-wise, it has a Wall-E-like profile with built-in wheels and a circular head that houses a digital screen for interaction and video calls (with humans, of course).
Lastly, the Samsung Bot Handy is designed to be the AI-powered extra hand around the house. It has a robotic arm to recognize, pick up, and move around objects. It also features a black display that can show blinking eyes. So what can Bot Handy do? It can pour a glass of wine, put dirty dishes in a dishwasher, and so much more.
