Asus chairman Jonney Shih started the company’s keynote at Computex 2016 with the unveil of the ZenBo household companion. The ZenBo is a rather cute, distinctly Wall-E-looking little robot, which can communicate with you as well as do a plethora of services at your whim.
The ZenBo can do most of the things that Amazon Echo does and can answer you most queries via voice commands. It can also give you recipe recoommendations, buying stuff online, logging into accounts and take photos.
In this rather lengthy video, Asus demonstrates how the Zenbo can become a part of a family’s life.
Asus emphasizes that this robot is intended for elderly people, but we don’t see any problem for it to fit the lifestyle of anyone. The robotic companion will cost $599.
