A TALKING ROBOT?
I had so much fun shopping with this adorable robot from Ecovacs Robotics at CES 2015.Â Benebot (he/she has a name) is a “shopping assist” robot capable of having completeÂ conversations with customers.
Ben-ebot,Â sounds like a 4 year child, and comes equipped with many sensors, an LCD display screen for videos, and a laser to point customers in the right direction. Oh, and heâs completely adorable. Understatement.
In Ben’sÂ high pitched child-like voice (personally, I feel that he, is a SHE) we went through an entire sales process,Â viaÂ a shopping demo on the CES 2015 trade show floor.
Benebot and I looked at humidifiers, vacuums, and more. AfterÂ we had checked out all the options, I was finally able to decide on the best product for me.[embedplusvideo height=”390″ width=”640″ editlink=”http://bit.ly/1zsXbsC” standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/4d2DVKndo20?fs=1″ vars=”ytid=4d2DVKndo20&width=640&height=390&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=0&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=Â¬es=” id=”ep5821″ /]
EcovacsÂ Robotics won a CES Innovation Award for RAYBOT, an automated bot, that cleans solar panels.
Winbot, Ecovacs’Â famous window-cleaning robot, also impressed me very much, but it was the cute little Benebot that won my heart. And I walked away the proud owner of a new vacuum cleaner.
