In the Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics, Russian creators smart machines presented his creation – a new interactive robot, which unlike its predecessor is more flexible “body” frame for mounting a smartphone or tablet, which, incidentally, are the new interchangeable “brains” bot.

This device, in form like a swan, and there is a new “artificial intelligence” of the company, which has recently introduced its first-born in the area of ??interactive robots, quickly won the sympathy of the people. Field of application of robots is large: patient monitoring in hospitals, remote “presence” sick students at school or university. In addition to the functions the robot at a distance, appeared the new electronic “brains”. Inserting special fixtures any gadget, you ensure that the robot will recognize your face, fix your gaze and even follow you. For example, doing baby-sitting services, a robot can not leave the baby without “supervision” and communication. The robot is able to converse, read and show the story, and the “sleep” and “wake up” with the child (he does it in response to the closed or open eyes ward).

 

Another feature of the new creation is that all of your settings for the robot and your preferences (for example, a favorite quiet melody that the robot is on, when you want to take a nap), will be stored on your tablet or smartphone as long as you want it thanks to the special software. “Smart” robot due to its ability to manipulation, can independently fold and “hide” under the bed when you are not, and when he hears your voice, – go from there. Even going to the “alien” to the robot and insert your gadget, you will quickly “get acquainted” with the newcomer. If necessary, he will give you advice, pick up information based on your desires and preferences. So far, in terms of software for the newly interactive robot leader of the Android platform is Google, but as we know in the near future will be made for development and other operating systems such as IOS and Windows.

 

The company has presented and junior “desktop” brothers Riyadh Botha, who assigned the task of smaller manipulation within a small area (eg, within the table). For example, he can ride a smartphone, when he calls, or tell the weather, while you are busy with their chores. The shape of junior and senior Air Bots vary in size and weight class they are also different. Big Robot about a meter high (unfolded) and weighs 10 kg, junior shorter and weighs about 3 pounds. Price issue is already known, the large “Swan” will have to pay $ 499, and for the “ugly duckling” $ 299.

 

Previously, it was difficult to imagine what kind of a box with wheels will perform various tasks and objectives. But the human mind is still able to come up with a mate.
