Designed to provide the assistance, the entertainment and the companionship at home, Zenbo seems as if ET had fused with an iMac G4. The robot is the half of a home inspector and half of a wizard style of the Eco Amazon.

The domestic robot Zenbo of the Asus Company was announced just before the start of the Computex trade show being held this week in Taipei. This robot is capable of taking multiple facets, it’s difficult to classify it and, well, it’s just plain weird.

Zenbo can understand the voice commands; for example, the user may ask you to remember an appointment with the doctor. At home, it also automatically monitors to detect the emergencies, and then notifies the family members through a smartphone of any developments.

Wizard for Zenbo

It has a built in camera, which according to the Asus company, it’s ideal for photos and it can be controlled remotely, for example, to check what your dog or a small child are doing.
Zenbo also functions as a stereo speaker; you can tell the children's stories to entertain your child or with educational games. Its animated face, which can display a range of emotions, is a touch screen.

Finally, Zenbo can be connected to other smart, such as the televisions, intelligent lights and the air conditioners appliances. For example, you can tell it to turn on or off the TV.
If we have to think of a similar device, the closest one would be the Rolling Bot LG, which it's not yet launched, and that it would be a much simpler device. Pepper, another competitor that is from Japan, it's more "human", but a much more expensive robot.

Zenbo costs US $ 599; and there are still no details about its availability in the United States or other countries.
