ASUS Smart Little Companion Zenbo is showcased

Zenbo is a home robot from ASUS that is able to wheel itself around, respond to the “Hey Zenbo” phrase much like many regular smartphone assistants, and perform as a smartphone hub.
Exact details of its launch are scarce, but it will be priced from $599.
Described by ASUS chairman Jonney Shih as a “smart little companion”, Zenbo’s feature set is presently aimed at seniors and children.
The robot is currently capable of much the same tasks as you would expect of a voice-controlled tablet computer on wheels, albeit with a select number of custom applications — such as a library of stories that involve different voices, and controlling the room’s lighting, as well as reminding seniors of appointments and notifying family members in the case of a fall — but the company is looking for partners and developers to get on board.
“For decades, humans have dreamed of owning such a companion: One that is smart, dear to our hearts, and always at our disposal,” Shih said. “Our ambition is to enable robotic computing for every household.”
