LG has recently debuted its Rolling Bot alongside its new G5 phone at the NWC.
This new household robot may remind some of Star Wars’ BB-8, but familiar cuteness aside, it does have some pretty useful functions. Rolling Bot is able to entertain pets with a laser pointer, control TVs and appliances, and allow its owner to stream live video to his or her smartphone. However, this robot does not have the capability to vacuum floors; we still have to rely on Roombas for that.
The Rolling Bot still has some issues; in a recent demo, the bot refused to move at one point despite a clear connection to its handler’s phone. Hopefully, LG will come through and fix those issues before releasing such an interesting gadget.
As of right now, there is no release date or price for the Rolling Bot.
