The latest CES means a wave of new innovation and new robots. One standout from the incoming class is this palm-sized robot called the Scout. It’s being billed as the world’s first autonomous home robot for intelligent monitoring. This means it is built to keep an eye on your home thanks to two-way radio and night vision as it patrols using omnidirectional wheels. The Scout can also be voice-controlled via Alexa or Google and doubles as a pet companion and educational toy for kids.
In a confluence of the surveillance state, heightened home security concerns, and consumer interest in baby cams and robot vacuums, Moorebot revealed a robot that functions as an autonomous surveillance camera on wheels, powered by AI tech. Basically, those Monster Truck-looking tires give it the self-driving mobility advantage over mounted cameras. Instead of one of those “Beware of Dog” signs, you’ll need one that reads “Beware of Robot.”
