Are We Close To Having Our Very Own Rosy Jetson?
Since the ASIMO popularized the idea of having a little robot following around humans and learning, we've always thought we were getting close to what "The Jetsons" would be like. Robot butlers, automatic food dispensers (3D printed food anyone?), and flying cars.
While surely many of these are on their way, ASUS' Zenbo (the latest robot looking to join your family) has been aimed at providing "assistance, entertainment, and companionship". However, unlike the nearly sentient beings on Sci-fi TV shows or cartoons, this little bot (similar to many others before it) responds to voice commands and can use a variety of other tools at its disposal (it unfortunately however, cannot wash your clothes and make you dinner).
None the less however, it deserves a peek!
