The age of robots is upon us and KEECKER is an all-singing, all-dancing smart robot that’s supposed to redefine “the home entertainment and connected devices market.” Unveiled at last week’s CES show, KEECKER is founded by ex-Google employee Pierre Lebeau. The new bot features a sleek and minimal design and can transport itself from room to room and has a variety of multimedia functions built in. It stands 25 inches tall and is 16 inches wide and comes with a variety of features like gaming and video calling, audio speakers, video projection, 360-degree audio and video capture, in addition to its ability to monitor sound volume, light levels, humidity and temperature of your home.
It’ll also enable you to listen to music, browse the web and more – all through your smartphone. It can urn any room into an entertainment haven and just about any surface can be used as a massive display. It’s controlled via iOS, Android and web-based apps and comes with 1 terabyte of internal storage, as well as a dock that recharges it. KEECKER also plans to publish an open API so that developers can create their own a pops for the bot. And because robots are never cheap, get ready to fork over between $4k-5K for the bot that’s currently in its prototype stage and will reportedly see funding via a Kickstarter campaign.
