I’ve already told you to look for Anki, the maker of Cozmo, when it finally goes public. Another robot company to watch for is Mayfield Robotics. Mayfield makes Kuri, another consumer-friendly robot that’s featured at CES 2017.
This robot wanders around your home, acting as your personal assistant. Kuri can answer questions as well as monitor your pets, children or aged parents. It can help monitor your house and do things for you that would currently require a PC, smartphone or tablet using services such as Google, Skype, etc.
