Asus Zenbo small
Attached to the top of the orb via a shiny metal arm is the robot's face, an oval-shaped screen with a built-in display that can show information or, in true robot fashion, eyes and a mouth. It also includes a camera, which can detect faces, take photos and videos, and offer remote home monitoring via an app.
Asus envisions the monitoring capabilities as especially useful for elderly owners; if someone looks like they've fallen or are otherwise in distress, Zenbo can notify an emergency contact.
Post here if it doesn't seem to fit anywhere else.

You've probably heard of Siri and Amazon Echo. These probably have inspired A.I. controlled robots that we might start to see.
I can see kids having some fun with this. However I am wondering how they would go with houses that have stairs?
It is being marketed as a companion for the elderly. I suppose it could be used for home security and keeping track of what is happening in the home.
It would be interesting to do a trial where they give one to each person in a retirement village. Then get them each to write on their experiences.
