Robots, robots, robots. There are plenty of them to go around at International CES beginning this week in Las Vegas.
Robot manufacturer, WowWee will be one of the companies showing off its newest robots: CHiP, a robotic dog with an AI personality and R.E.V. AIR and LUMI, two high-tech flying robots.
CHiP (Canine Home Intelligent Pet) is the kind of dog you would want if you want the dog without the hair, mess, and responsibility. The robot is based on Mechatronics, the latest in a combination of wireless technology, telecommunications engineering and a contains a bunch of sensors.
CHiP can recognize its master and respond to commands using the included SmartBand, a rechargeable wearable controller. CHiP also plays fetch and fun games with a SmartBall (CHiP plays soccer), so users can interact with the robot like a real dog. Unlike your living dog, CHiP knows when it’s time to head to its special SmartBed and recharge, too. The robot will be available this year for $200.
R.E.V. AIR is a Robotic Enhanced Vehicle battle-game platform that features the latest technologies in both Beaconsense Artificial Intelligence and Flight Control Systems. The app-based flight experience allows the player to engage by controlling a flying quadcopter to battle an AI ground vehicle, or even get chased in the real world by an AI quadcopter with the capability to attack, fire virtual missiles and swarm at your maneuverable R.E.V vehicle. Robot lovers: R.E.V. AIR will be available at the end of the year for $130.
LUMI combines drone gaming and with automated indoor quadcopters. LUMI can fly itself while you play, direct and command it via smart device app. Users can select motions, maneuvers, stunts, or take control and fly it themselves. The flying robot comes equipped with different game modes and allows users to choreograph flight moves and record them for sharing on social media. The LUMI will be available for purchase this year for $80.
