CES 2015: Benebot Is An Ultra-Cute Robotic Shopping Assistant [Video]
Persuading you to buy products in a cheerful, chipmunk voice
One of our favorite booths at CES was by Ecovacs Robotics, a company known for their innovative cleaning robots. The company won a CES Innovation Award for RAYBOT, an automated bot that cleans solar panels, and Winbot, their famous window-cleaning robot, also impressed us. But it was the cute little Benebot that won our hearts.
Benebot is a shopping assisted robot capable of having full conversations with customers. He comes equipped with numerous sensors, an LCD display screen for videos, and a laser to point customers in the right direction. Oh, and he’s completely adorable.
