    The MamiRobot Sevian Vacuum cleaner can handle all home terrain

    The Roomba has had a lot of competition in recent years, and we’ve just seen another contender for the crown of best robotic vacuum cleaner. The MamiRobot is a Korean brand that cleans your house using wireless charging technology, and returns itself to the docking station when its task is complete.

    The Mamirobot is fitted with anti fall sensors and light sensors to enable it to avoid stairs and the bumper sensors on the side make sure that it can avoid big obstructions. The twin charging station is interestingly designed, with the larger Mamirobot stationed at the base, and the handheld Zaaloo jutting out the back. The Zaaloo is a wireless handheld vacuum which is much smaller- great for getting into smaller areas, and meaning you can reach places that the larger Mamirobot can’t access. It can even be used on your computer to get tod of dust- a nice touch.

    Pet the Paro: The robot that helps you recuperate

    Fluffy seals are always going to give us the ahh factor, especially when they react to your stroking with mewling and tail wagging. The Paro is a therapeutic robot which allows pet free people to enjoy the benefits of having an animal without the stress, and acts as a valuable therapeutic tool in places where animals are unwelcome- such as hospitals. TheParo is currently undergoing its 8th revolution as a therapy robot, and includes some updates and enhancements to its body. It remains the same fluffy harp seal you may have seen before, but within the antibacterial fur lies a wealth of tech goodness.

    Dual processors control behavioural software and a voice recognition system which allows the Paro to build relationships with its owners and makes it respond to sound, touch and light. In effect, these attributes help the Paro create a distinct personality, and create an artificial bond with its owner.

    The idea is that interacting with the Paro provides one with therapeutic social interaction and motivates and amuses them. A quick five minutes playing with the Paro was enough to have me filled very chilled, so I can really see the beneficial side to this robot.
