There are two ways of looking a robots, the first is that they are designed to make our lives easier by doing jobs that we do not wish to do or by carrying out tasks that are useful. The other point of view is that eventually they will rise up and we will become their slaves. However, this is Pillo and this robot has been designed to look after your health, which is a bit like having a somebody watching over you to make sure that you are eating well, checking your stress levels and should you have a fall or something similar it will know.
The user experience is driven by a powerful ARM based processor, seven-inch touchscreen display, HD camera, multiple microphones, speaker, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities. Pillo is also equipped with an auxiliary lithium-ion battery to ensure that important functionality can remain active in the event of a temporary power outage.
You might be thinking that this kind of technology is way years away, but no as the Pillo is already going though its design, funding and pre production phases, in fact according the team behind the Pillo it could be ready for mid 2017 with a starting retail price of around $600. But, we would not be featuring this robot if there was nothing in it for you, so if you head on over to the Pillo Indiegogo page you could bag a bargain Pillo at around $300, which is not bad for something that could have a long lasting effect on your health and fitness.
