The new year and the latest CES means a wave of new innovations and new robots. The leader of the upcoming class is this handheld robot called Moorebot Scout. It is known as the world’s first autonomous home robot for intelligent monitoring. This means that it uses an omnidirectional wheel patrol function to monitor your house through two-way broadcast and night vision functions. Scouts can also be voice-controlled via Alexa or Google and can double as pet companions and children’s educational toys. Scouts are expected to go on sale this spring.
