ASUS Zenbo – your personal “smart” assistant
The idea for the new ASUS Zenbo robot came from the head of ASUS, Johnny Shea. He’s always wanted to bring robotics into everyday life. ASUS Zenbo is a cute, versatile robot that helps you around the house. It will become a full-fledged family member who will always be at your service, and with whom you can have fun or chat. The ASUS Zenbo robot is endowed with many abilities, including moving around the house on its own and following voice commands.
Everyone will find something useful and interesting among the functions of the robot ASUS Zenbo. For the older generation, it will help to monitor your health: it will always remind you about your doctor’s appointments, tell you when you need to take medicine or exercise, as well as any other important information that you need to remember.
If your family member should have an accident or fall, the Zenbo robot will notify you instantly with a phone call. When you get a message about an emergency, you can remotely control the robot and its built-in camera, which allows you to see exactly what’s going on. And Zenbo can help seniors learn how to use voice commands to make video calls, chat on social networks, store online, and watch streaming movies or TV shows.
The new Zenbo robot is sure to be friends with children: it can tell exciting stories or play games that develop creative thinking and logic. With the built-in high quality audio system, Zenbo can sing their favorite songs and even dance to the music. Plus, with Zenbo, you can keep the kids busy during the day, and tuck them in at night. Zenbo not only tells fairy tales, it can read stories by role, show different illustrations on the screen and control the lighting in the room. Educational games and an interactive encyclopedia, built into Zenbo, will turn learning into a fun process.
The new Zenbo robot can also make your life easier and be a huge help in running your household. Zenbo knows how to connect to the “smart home” and control all its systems and devices, such as turn on or off the lights, TV or air conditioning with voice commands. If your doorbell rings, you can ask Zenbo to show you on the built-in screen who’s coming and then open the door if necessary. It’s a true everyday companion in the kitchen, able to read recipes or take the time to prepare a dish. Thanks to the built-in camera, Zenbo can capture all the important moments in your family, and in your absence will monitor the security of your home. Using a special app for your smartphone, you will always know what is happening in your home.
The new Zenbo robot also supports a huge number of third-party apps that can extend its functionality. Zenbo Developer Program contains all the information and tools you need to create new programs and interfaces. We are also looking forward to collaborating on building an efficient ecosystem for robotics. For more information, visit /data/away/6cafc530fc25316bf9109f465f95877d/ .
