Samsung unveils trio of new robots to help out around the house

Samsung's 'Bot Handy' is there for all your personal needs, like pouring the vino

Together, "with AI as the core enabler for your better tomorrow", these 'bots represent Samsung's vision for the future: "Robotics and AI, adapting to you, and helping you do things more easily at home, and outside of it".

In addition to Samsung, media also heard from Bosch earlier Monday about its initiatives to combine AI with IoT. The company has showcased a Samsung Bespoke 4-Door Flex refrigerator, 110-inch MICRO LED, a Lifestyle TV and Samsung Health Smart Trainer on Samsung 2021 TVs.

The new four-door model will be available across North America this spring.

110-inch MICRO LED: This new screen features self-lit inorganic LED with a slim and almost bezel-less Infinity Screen design that seamlessly blends into the living space. The TV comes with a bezel-less Infinity Screen design with "4Vue" (Quad View), a four-way viewing option. Here's hoping Bot Care and Bot Handy are not only available soon but also fairly affordable.

Lifestyle TV: Samsung's cutting-edge lifestyle TV lineup includes The Serif, The Frame, The Sero and The Terrace-a recently launched 4K QLED outdoor TV-as well as Samsung The Premiere, a cinema-like quality 4K laser projector.

Meanwhile, SmartThings Cooking is a new home automation service which features an automatic meal planner that recommends food for the course of the entire week.

The Samsung Health app features the new Smart Trainer4 that allows your TV to transform into a personal trainer for home workout sessions. Its Smart Trainer feature utilizes USB camera connected with TV, giving feedback on form and calculating calories burned.

Mr Seung said it is leveraging its seven global AI research centres to advance technology.

The line-up includes a robot vacuum cleaner which uses artificial intelligence (AI) to identify cables and fragile objects when tidying.

The JetBot 90 AI+ can also be used as a home monitoring device using the device's SmartThings integration and camera.

I believe Samsung is implying that the Bot Handy could potentially become my new robot sidekick, a loyal companion who will spend its days making my life easier, allowing me to spend more of my precious time watching television on any one of the 5,000 streaming platforms that will emerge in our near future. The robot will also learn your schedule and habits and send you reminders to help guide you throughout your busy day.

Apparently Samsung had a similar thought, and that's why they're developing Bot Handy, a handy-dandy rolling robot with expressive eyes, an arm that pivots at three points, and a claw extension that can do the laundry, set the table, and help you cope.

Samsung says Handy will be able to tell the difference between objects, using the right amount of force to grab and move things around.

Galaxy Upcycling at Home: At the event, Samsung announced an update to its Galaxy Upcycling program called Galaxy Upcycling at Home. For example, Samsung's new Solar Cell Remote Control-made in part with recycled plastic-can be charged via solar or indoor lighting, reducing battery waste.
