ASUS chairman Jonney Shih had a surprising reveal earlier today in the midst of Zenfones and Transformers – Zenbo, a robotic home assistant that promises to do your every bidding – at least to the appliances it can connect to. The robotic assistant is capable of reminding you of your schedule, entertaining your kids and controlling appliances in your home – as long as said appliances have IR modules or have IoT capabilities.
Aside from that, Zenbo can also keep a sharp eye on older family members, sending text messages and streaming real time video of your older folks if they detect they’ve fallen for some reason. Zenbo is great at keeping kids occupied as well, and can take photos of yourself and your family if you feel like it. The cute robot is priced at just $599 or an equivalent of 28K, though there’s no talk of official release just yet.
