Known for their smartphones and TVs, Samsung unveiled a rather unique invention recently at a virtual press conference as part of the 2021 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
Among the brand’s new gadgets is the Bot Handy. Think of it as your robot-servant fully-equipped with artificial intelligence to recognise different objects and pick up them up for you. Cleaning is going to be a lot easier now. But that’s not all…
Although it is still in development and is not currently for sale, the Bot Handy has managed to turn wine enthusiasts’ heads with its ability to pour a glass of wine as shown in the video below. The robot can also be seen handing a glass of water to Sebastian Seung, president and head of Samsung Research.
Samsung hopes that through AI, the Bot Handy will become a more capable robotic butler that can help with household chores by understanding objects in the “not-so distant future”.
Seung said: “Bot Handy uses AI to understand objects, like a glass cup or ceramic plate, taking note of their shape and materials to work as your trusted partner. Bot Handy can move around and do things like set the table or put away groceries. It flips the script on what a robot in your home could look like.”
Well, we can’t wait to have a maid and a bartender all-in-one.
