Meet Zenbo, Asus's $599 Home Robot

03.06.2016 | Fortune | www.fortune.com

Asus  may be best known as the maker of laptops and phones, but now it unveiled a fairly low-cost robot that can help with heathcare and controlling the smart home.

The Zenbo robot, which will cost $599, will be able to understand spoken commands and roll around on its own. It’s supposed to help remind people of things like their doctor’s appointments and medication and exercise schedules, while also keeping a virtual eye out for emergencies.

Zenbo can also connect to smart-home components such as lights, door locks and security cameras, read out recipes, and entertain kids with interactive stories and songs. In short, it’s a giant, semi-autonomous mobile device.

Asus said it was launching a developer program to help others create apps for Zenbo.
