We have seen the future of home robotics, and it includes Samsung’s all-new Bot Handy. Unlike current home robots, this one will rely on advanced artificial intelligence algorithms to recognize and pick up objects of varying sizes, shapes and weights, becoming a helper around the house. This means that it can tell the difference between the material composition of various objects, enabling it to utilize just the right amount of force to grab and move around household objects.

Samsung’s Bot Handy will easily be able to help out with house chores, including cleaning up messy rooms, sorting out the dishes after a meal, or even pouring a glass of wine. There’s no word yet on pricing or availability, but considering that Boston Dynamics’ Spot robot costs $75,000 USD, we’d imagine a similar price tag on this one.

Looking to the future, Samsung is also developing other tangible applications of AI technologies for daily life. Samsung is continuing to build on its Samsung Bot™ Retail, which would guide users outside the home in retail environments, and GEMS, Samsung’s health-focused exoskeleton as mobility aide,” said Samsung.
