Seg­way Loomo

Australian T3 - - 2018’S GADGET WISHLIST -

Seg­ways’ lat­est ma­chine hops onto the ro­bot-helper trend, while also keep­ing true to the com­pany’s mo­bil­ity roots. You can step onto the Loomo and ride it around like other smaller Seg­way prod­ucts, but it also has some au­ton­omy built in, along with handy arms for hold­ing things. So, you could ride it to the shops, grab a few bags of sup­plies, then load up the Loomo with them and have it fol­low you as you walk home. Tell it “Loomo, trans­form” and a screen-equipped ‘head’ ro­tates out to turn it into a lit­tle emo­tive ro­bot. You can have it fol­low you around and take pic­tures, trig­gered with a ges­ture. It’s pro­gram­mable too, and can recog­nise ob­jects. $TBC, seg­way­robotics.com
