    Imagine that thing walking into your bedroom at 3 AM while you're fast asleep, and having it say to you in a really loud robotic voice that it's currently running low on battery life and needs to be recharged immediately. Or having it bringing you a small ball and telling you that it is bored and wants to play. Is this thing always connected to the internet? I don't trust it with its cameras.

    I can't see that selling very well. Not only is it tethered , but it only lifts 1.5kg which is very poor and it's very slow. Also for that price I would expect a robot that lifts things ten times that weight , untethered and much faster.

    If a personal robot isn't able to go out, do your job,collect a pay check and pay for itself, it's not worth squat.

    Stop now. Nobody's paying 30k for a robot that takes a whole minute to pick up a block from a desk. Plus, they need to give it a friendly face. When it can receive a verbal command like "Get me a beer" and navigate itself to the fridge, open it, get the beer and bring it back already opened within the amount of time a human would take to do all that, then it's worth considering. Not that beer retrieval is the #1 use-case, but it's an example of a simple command and simple task that it would need to be able to do.

    wow… everytime someone show of a new helping-type robot no matter what year. I always get dissapointed. Probably years in development and still very underwhelming. look it can lift things, just make sure you have a 30 minutes to spare while you wait for you warm soda to arrive.

    Can't wait to see this thing on the news after criminals use it in robberies.

    Anything on rollers is junk. A real robot assistant will be able to navigate anywhere a human can.

    the problem isn't price… people buy cars more expensive than that … the issue is it's useless and doesn't do much. overpriced and no actual features to it
