Meet Vyo: a social robot designed for smart homes. It relies on expressive gestures, physical icons, and screen feedback for communication. Operators can use “tangible” icons, each representing a smart home device, to put the robot to use.
By placing these icons onto the robot’s rotating turntable, it is possible to control and monitor smart home devices. What do you think? Are you impressed?
