Using voice recognition, Pillo will also be able to answer any health-related question for you. It will keep you in close contact with your preferred physician. And if you’re on the go, you can easily connect it to other wireless devices.
Interested yet? For now, the robot is currently going through a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. But with a month still left in the campaign and 90% of its total funding already covered, it would appear you will soon be able to own your very own robot pill pusher in the near future. That is, with a price range somewhere between $300-500.
Pillo is a unique robot for a set of specific tasks. If it lives up to its hype, it will certainly join the roster of many other robots who are prepared to make your life that much easier. But I know what you’re thinking: when will our “swiss army knife” robots be developed? You know, a robot that is capable of every task that is asked of it? We might have to wait a little bit longer for a robot that is equivalent to Rosie from the hit cartoon show The Jetsons, but it’s a wait that will be well worth it.
In the meantime, to ensure that future commences, we’ll need to first make sure robots of today operate as efficiently as possible. So reach out and embrace the emerging age of robotics. Buy a Roomba, or a Jibo, or even a Pillo, and become leaders of the world of tomorrow.
