SAM­SUNG WANTS TO BRING ROBOTS HOME

Apple Magazine - - Ces 2019 -

Up next for Sam­sung: a ro­bot that can keep its eye on grandma and grandpa.

The rolling ro­bot, which talks and has two dig­i­tal eyes on a black screen, can track medicines they take, mea­sure blood pres­sure and call 911 if it de­tects a fall.

The com­pany didn’t not say when Sam­sung Bot Care would be avail­able, but brought the ro­bot out on stage Mon­day at a pre­sen­ta­tion at CES. Sam­sung also said it is work­ing on a ro­bot for stores and an­other for test­ing and pu­ri­fy­ing the air in homes.

Sam­sung also un­veiled TVs, ap­pli­ances and other high-tech giz­mos — but not a fold­able phone it hinted at in Novem­ber. But a startup called Roy­ole did. The Roy­ole FlexPai smart­phone was first shown in Novem­ber but the Cal­i­for­nia-based com­pany has more de­tails. The phone will have a 7.8-inch dis­play that can be folded like a wal­let, priced at more than $1,300.
