Say hello to Zenbo.
This could be the world’s most affordable and lifelike robotic personal assistant.
Developed by Asus, Zenbo is about the size of a large vacuum cleaner with a LED display head.
Complete with a lifelike face."Claire, I have a reminder for you."
Zenbo is able to move independently and can even respond to voice commands.
If you want, you could even strike up a conversation with it.
The robotic PA has the usual functions including reminders, playing music and even making calls.
But the Taiwanese company sees Zenbo as much more of a companion.
Asus said it will be able to read stories to young children and even keep the elderly company.
Price tag for Zenbo will be a relatively affordable $599.
The only other comparable product on the market is from Japan – it’s called the Pepper robot,
but it costs more than $1700.
While consumers have been enjoying the company of computer assistants like Amazon’s Echo and Google’s new Assistant,
whether they want one following them around is another question.
