first_img Review: ‘Daemon X Machina’ Has Big Robots, Small Fun on Nintendo SwitchThis Robot Is Equal Parts Lawnmower and Snow Blower Have you ever fantasized about having your own little adorable companion robot? The reality of the matter is they aren’t very far away. A recent Wired article explores the author’s experience with a very cute little robot named Robot, a so-called “companion robot” that can help people with their daily tasks and a variety of other helpful things that can be automated.For instance, little Kuri can learn what the layout of your house looks like to avoid bumps and other things in its way, play music for you, and even recognize the members of your family. It can even shoot video and broadcast it to you. Kuri can also interact with humans in significant ways, in terms of endearing movements, beeps and boops, and a type of “speech” that you’d expect from a robot like R2-D2 or something of that famous droid’s ilk.The article also explored another companion robot that’s capable of challenging the ways that humans interact. ElliQ is a much more humanoid-looking robot that can speak English and can even remind elderly owners to take medications or remember to do other tasks. In terms of interacting with real people, it’s also ahead of the pack, which is something robotics creators are working on specifically to improve, as well as setting important expectations going forward for robots and their human friends in the future.As far as these robots go, they’re going a long way when it comes to nurturing real relationships between their humans and the ones that will likely end up relying on them for assistance in the future. It’s a precious and unexpected thing, and something we’re going to see a whole lot more in the future. Here’s to keeping our robot friends happy and them keeping us happy in turn in the future.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on targetlast_img
