ASUS' domestic robot

By Simon Sharwood, 31 May 2016

ASUS has announced a domestic robot named "Zenbo" that looks like the mutant offspring of the desk-lamp iMac G4 and vacuum cleaner.

Revealed on Monday at Computex in Taipei, Zenbo can take photos, play music and includes a Siri-and-Cortana-like voice interface/persona. Zenbo packs a camera it can use for sentry duty or for taking whatever photos you command.

The device will go on sale later this year at US$599.

ASUS has provided the video below to show of Zenbo's best bits. ®
