Mayfield Robotics, the makers of Kuri, are an offshoot of Bosch. They have just announced Kuri is now available for pre order for $699* and should ship by the end of the year.
Kuri learns the layout of your home as it follows you around. Kuri can recognize you, play music, tell stories and take photos and video.
Kuri comes with a docking station and recharges itself as needed.
There will also be a companion app for your phone, allowing you to tell Kuri where to go. Will Pepper, Kuri or some other robot win the home robot market?
*Update – As of 2/2/18 Kuri is $799 until 3/1. Expected to ship Spring of 2018.
