In-home Robot Capable of Cleaning Floors, Fetching Items

12 January 2018

Making its debut this week at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the Aeolus robot from Aeolus Robotics checks off a number of boxes for those in search of a robot that could lend a hand at home.

Powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning, Aeolus can perform a number of practical household tasks such as cleaning floors, organizing and storing household items and retrieving items, thanks to a responsive arm.

Along with being able to complete household tasks, Aeolus — thanks to sensory and biometric technologies — can distinguish between family members, household objects and living space. The robot can even alert the proper authorities once it detects an emergency situation such as a fire.

“At Aeolus Robotics, it’s our mission to bring together the latest in robotics, AI and machine learning in an affordable in-home robot,” said Alexander Huang, Global CEO of Aeolus Robotics.

Although still a prototype, the robot is expected to be available for purchase at the end of this year.

“Costing less than a family vacation overseas, the Aeolus Robot makes the dream of having a home robot a reality and frees up valuable time for you to do the things you want to do,” Huang said.

" Watch the accompanying video to see aeolus in action ".

You mean the 1 minute and 1 second video that shows for the first fifty seconds absolutely nothing in action and the last ten seconds of a robot holding a beer followed by closing credits ?

Well, to be fair, the beer does make it's first appearance around 35 seconds...

Is it real, or is it Memorex? Looks like a rendered CAD model, not a completed prototype. I do however applaud the effort.
