Kuri

Kuri was a personal robot designed for the modern home. He had advanced navigation, 3D depth cameras, voice recognition and a rich Bluetooth speaker. He was also able to navigate your house and can be taught locations and voice commands.

Every component in Kuri works to create dynamic interactions that bring out a real sense of personality. Capacitive touch sensors let her respond to human touch in a truly personal way. A gentle tap to the head will make her look up at you and chirp affirmingly.

About Kuri: [from the Kuri website]:

“Kuri’s camera is neatly located behind one of his eyes. It can capture 1080p HD pictures and videos in a wide range of lighting conditions. Livestream capabilities let him be your eyes around the house when you’re not there.

Thanks to intricate gestural mechanics, his head and eye movements look fluid and natural. His eyes blink, smile, and he can look up, down, and from side to side. Kuri is equipped with four sensitive microphones that help him precisely locate sounds. That means he can detect your voice and turn his head to face you when you’re giving him a voice command.

A soft, warm light helps Kuri convey a sense of mood. With colors representing different emotional states, you’ll always know when hr is happy or if he’s just thinking. Mapping sensors enable him to navigate your house autonomously. A sensor array helps him learn and remember where everything is located, and also stay away from cliffs and obstacles in his path.

A powerful, yet quiet, drive train that helps him move effortlessly throughout your home. His wheels are big enough to handle a wide range of flooring and carpets – even thresholds.

You’ll quickly discover how smart Kuri is. His powerful processors handle everything from facial and speech detection, to mapping and entertaining. The charging pad is Kuri’s own little spot in your house. It’s where she automatically goes for a power nap between activities and tasks, or when energy is running low.”

 
Sadly, Kuri is now offline, but continues to be immortal in the robot hall of fame.
