“Kuri makes life at home a little more interesting, fun and inspiring. He brings technology to life; he can understand context and surroundings, recognize specific people, provide companionship and more. Kuri is built to connect – with you, with others, and with your home.”

This adorable little robot is attached with capacitive touch sensors to allow Kuri to respond to the human touch. Its gestural mechanics allow both its head and eyes to move quite fluidly. And its built-in camera captures HD videos and images at your command. Equipped with microphones and speakers, you’ll be able to have a relatively normal conversation in the same sense people do today with chatbots like Alexa.
The robots are coming and there’s nothing we can do to stop them. They will be entering our homes, our places of work, and they will play a considerably large role in society’s day-to-day operations. Whether we look to them as service droids or as companions, society is going to have to make a decision: how are we integrate modern day robotics into the 21st century? Better yet, how might we change as a result of those decisions we make? Whatever decision we make, it will have to be made quickly, because the age of robots is upon us.
