Mayfield Robotics unveiled its Kuri robot at CES 2017. Kuri is a mobile robot designed to have a personality to connect with families. Kuri offers similar abilities to other social robots. A built-in HD camera lets you can check on your house or pets while you’re away; the four microphones, dual speakers and WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity allow Kuri to play music or podcasts and read stories; IFTTT capabilities to connect work with smart homes.
Mayfield says Kuri will get smarter over time with regular software updates. Kuri is 20 inches tall, weighs about 14 lbs and has an app for iOS and Android for setup and control. Mayfield showed off limited voice control capabilities during our private demo, and the company plans to expand those abilities before shipping.
