If you are looking for a robotic smart home assistant you might be interested in a new concept piece of hardware which has been launched via the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign called XIBOT.
XIBOT has been designed by a Chinese-based development company who require just $10,000 to take their concept into production and have designed XIBOT to provide a way to be notified of those important emails but is also capable of moving autonomously.
It looks as though the XIBOT is still in it’s early concept stage of development and a number of the features in the video look as though they have been rendered, rather than actually fully functioning on the new hardware. Check out the video for yourself below and make your own decision as to whether you would like to pledge your hard earned cash to help bring the XIBOT into manufacture.
Xibot has exhibited at CES 2016 in Las Vegas where she made lots of friends. Having trouble waking up in the morning? Let XIBOT be your wake-up assistant. She will gently call your name and say good morning to you. A brand new day is about to start. Wanna know what to wear during the day? Nobody is prepared to be a drowned rat… XIBOT will forecast the weather as considerately as possible, reminding you of temperature, moisture, humidity, etc.
E-mails, messages, phone calls, shopping list… Everyday, a lot of tasks are pending. What if we forget one important task? What if we mess it up? What if we don’t understand the sophisticated operating system on smartphones? With an easy-to-use feature and interface, XIBOT can act as a personal assistant in our lives. She can help you connect to your family and friends quickly and easily. Having XIBOT by your side, you just can’t imagine how convenient life will be.
With Wi-Fi connected to Xibot, you can monitor your house anywhere and anytime. She can guard your house when nobody is home. Or sneak peak what your kids or pets do and how they behave when you are not present. Perhaps you will soon find out why candies in the fridge are missing for no reason.
