If money is not an issue, will you buy a robot for your home? This may sound like something straight out of sci-fi movies. But the future has arrived, at least when it comes to robots, years ago. In fact, there are now several types of robots that you can purchase and use at home.
The robot that helps out with household chores
It is hard to find time to clean house when you are constantly busy. But what if you have a robot that could do the job and do it well? The good news is that housekeeping robots are actually a thing now. Some people have already reaped the benefits of investing on this type of unit. The price range varies depending on the type and model you choose.
The robot with “emotions”
There are several perks to living alone. But it can get tedious at times. But what would a person who doesn’t want much human company do? You don’t have to give up your solitude to enjoy the company of someone you can interact with if you need to. Pepper is a robot that mimics certain humanistic behaviors that will make you think that it has emotions figured out in spades.
The robot that’s fun to be around
Entertainment robots have been around for several years. Some of the big names in companies that have stakes in robotics have already rolled out various models. There have been pet robots and life-like robots designed to entertain.
The multi-talented robot
Why settle on a housework robot if you can have a multi-talented one? They can perform certain tasks, entertain, and even play with you. They may even have the ability to educate or provide you with information if needed.
The robot caregiver
If you’re living with an elderly or a child, a nanny or caregiver robot could come handy. Caregiver robots have been used in some elderly facilities in Japan. A nanny robot guiding a group of children in Japan has also been featured in recent months.
