Imagine having a security camera that strolls around the house and keeps you safe. Imagine owning a robot, which can do all sorts of fun things. Imagine having a buddy who’ll both guard your home when you’re not around and keep you company when you’re alone.
Stop fantasizing. The future has arrived.
For a while now, Mayfield Robotics have been preparing something big – and, oh boy, have they delivered! The two-feet tall Kuri is probably the most intelligent home robot ever created. And the things it can do? Believe me, you will be amazed.
The technology used to design and create this robot is simply astonishing. Naturally, you would expect a modern day robot to have some sort of basic camera, speaker or a microphone, but Kuri packs all of that plus a lot more. Let’s start with the sensor array that uses lasers, which enables Kuri to avoid obstacles and navigate through your home. The loveable robot features impeccable hardware backed by the state of the art software – which allows it to, among other things, complete all of its tasks with the punctuality of a Swiss clock.
Kuri has WiFi, Bluetooth, it can play podcasts and react to voice commands or noises. What it doesn’t have is a display interface, so it won't try to communicate with you. Kuri is just here to help you and make your life more comfortable. You can also access Kuri through an app.
This robot is designed to connect with you and make your life easier. That is the main drive behind robotics and Kuri knows that as well, and that’s why it won’t become upset if you don’t pay attention to it. Instead, it can provide some background for your poker nights, or read a bedtime story to your kids. The list of things that this magnificent piece of technology can do goes on and on, but some of the main traits of Kuri are:
Kuri’s mission is to bring technology into your life. It can understand things just from the context and is able separate familiar people from intruders. Although it can’t talk, Kuri can reply using one of the many facial expressions – using a combination of sound effects, lights and blinking eyes. Kuri's amiable sounds are unique and its personality will make you believe it belongs in your home.
