Robots are beneficial life-enhancing devices in the lives of millions across the world. Since their invention, home robots have helped to ease lives in many smart ways. In this post, I will discuss five smart ways in which these machines can make your life more comfortable and more relaxed.
We start our discussion with what matters the most—your health. A home robot can help you and your family enjoy good health. Medications are common in our modern homes. However, our generation is so busy that people forget to take their medicines. Therefore, home robots come to the rescue by reminding people to take their drugs. For instance, Pillo is one such home robot that dispenses pills and offers medical counsel. The robot identifies family members by recognizing their faces to distribute appropriate tablets to them on time. Moreover, the robot pairs with your smartphone and can also connect to your family physician. Lastly, it can also answer your medical queries.
Care for the Aged
We all desire long life and hence, we celebrate our elderly family members. However, these senior family members have their unique health challenges due to their depleting physical vigor. To address this need, companies have designed robots to help senior citizens. For example, ElliQ is a one such social robot Intuition Robotics developed to assist older people in the home. The home robot enables them to schedule events such as medication reminders and also share health information with their loved ones.
Interactive Robots and Humor
It is sad but true to admit that we are getting sadder despite the many technological advancements we boast of. For instance, many families have lost the natural human touch our fathers enjoyed in the home. Instead, everyone is hooked to their smart devices as the expense of enjoying each other’s company. Therefore, a Boston-based startup has created a robot called Jibo to help meet this need. This beautiful small home robot has an artificial “social personality” that excites family members. It has a smart sense of comedy and jovial animations besides its dancing and swiveling body. The “happiness” robot has a camera and mikes that enable it to master up to 16 family members’ voices and faces. It also responds when family members call out its name.
Home Robots in Kitchen Assistance
The story of home robots is incomplete without mentioning how an AI personal assistant robot can enhance your kitchen life. Remember, the kitchen is your family health’s spring fount since it handles its preparation and storage. To help you achieve ease and convenience in this area, Bosch has developed a home robot called Mykie. The personal robot assistant works like Amazon’s Alexa.
The good side of this robot is its universal user-friendliness irrespective of whether you are a rookie or an expert cook. The little assistant helps you in planning your meals by connecting to other networked home gadgets. For instance, it can help you locate a recipe using only ingredients in your refrigerator. Additionally, the little bot also uses its internal projector to beam your recipes on the kitchen wall. It can also play recipe videos upon voice activation or touching its screen. Lastly, it takes the cooking excitement beyond your kitchen’s borders by connecting you with your buddies and family members anywhere using its integrated camera. This functionality means your relatives and friends can watch you enjoy your cooking!
Home Robots and Security
We end our home robot coverage on a security note. Your children’s security in the home is the highest priority. Therefore, a San Francisco-based startup has created a little robot called Kuri to watch your children and home when you are away. The little bot acts as a companion, entertainer, and utility giver to your home and children. For example, the robot can play music, do podcasts, and even read ebooks.
Home robots are great tools for easing and enhancing life; interactive robots can perform a wide range of functions in the modern home, thus easing your life.
