Asus has launched a wide range of devices that are not wild and crazy but are in tune with the future of a connected device and a smarter home. Many companies in the East have been making robots for many decades.
But since Android has become the one operating system that rules and connects them all, robots too will soon be interacting with your smartphones and home networks.
Asus has a vision of bringing similar products this year through Zenbo, a smart robot that looks a lot like merging ET, Wall-E, and EVA. But in all its design, the Zenbo is really a companion to have. Here's why.
The design of Zenbo takes you back to Steven Spielberg's classic E.T. And if the big face and long neck are not all, the smiling face which includes many smiley expressions as well will make you hug this guy.
If you have trouble cooking with a packed kitchen table filled with ingredients and recipe books, then Zenbo here will clear the mess books. He can give you step by step instructions for preparing your dishes.
Your child's friend at home
Zenbo is a great storyteller, dancer, and singer. You can now fire your nanny as he will do anything to keep your child happy.
Singing songs, reading all time classics with animations, the robot can read stories from the ones that he knows.
When someone nearby has fallen or is in trouble, Zenbo sends out an SOS notification to the family members. Providing a LIVE stream, you can reach your loved one and keep a close eye them while you're on your way.
Zenbo monitors activities in your house even while you're gone. With Asus allowing integration of IoT, Zenbo can show you who is at the door while you spend time reading your books or are busy at work in the garage.
There was a time that Jetsons family could be the perfect example. We may not have flying cars yet, but we get the perfect companion, friend, and helper available to do everything we need. Zenbo will be welcomed by many families indeed.
