Robotbase, located in New York, is a startup that has developed a robotic personal assistant for the home and office. With only 68 hours to go, the company has smashed its funding target on Kickstarter. The personal robotic device uses advanced facial recognition software to not only identify humans but also read their moods. In addition to doing things like setting alarms and scheduling appointments, it can also control connected devices around the home or office via wifi, Z-Wave, Zigbee, Bluetooth LE.
Robotbase is not the first A.I. assistant to be successfully crowdfunded. Others include Cubic, EmoSpark, Ubi, and Jibo, however Robotbase is the first that we've come across that can move around just like this device from Double Robotics.
You can pre-order a Robotbase for the "super early bird discount" price of $995, which is a saving of $1,000 off the retail price. The estimated shipping date is Sept 2015.
