PLEN Cube Portable Robot Assistant

We first heard about PlenGoer Robotics' portable robot assistant PLEN Cube prior to CES 2017, but the product is now on Kickstarter and has already raised $77,430 of its $50,000 goal with 43 days to go, at press time.

Plen Cube can take pictures for you, play music, tell you the news and weather, and remind you of appointments throughout your day. Plen Cube can also control smart devices throughout a home.

PlenGoer also makes the PLEN2 humanoid robot, which we're giving away this month.
