Loomo robotic buddy you might have yet. It can be ridden around and is part Hover-board, part voice assistant, the Loomo packs a lot of goods into its self-balancing frame.
The device is from Segway Robotics popular for its hover-boards it manufactures, which is backed by Intel and Xiaomi. Intel’s RealSense provides sensors to make it safe to use indoors and out and the Segway platform lets it self-balance and travel at up to 11 mph.
The device is loaded with features to the point where it seems the company is facing difficulties in defining the target market. The company says object and activity recognition lets it be the ideal security device. The cargo carrying and follow capability lets it be an interesting robotic companion. Either way, even without a clear target market, it’s a solid device with high potential.
Segway Robotics at CES 2018 gave a quick demo. The robot easily performed as advertised and even carried a bag. And as a Segway, it worked well, and showed its ablity to scoot people around the show floor.
But without a clear sales message it will be hard to sell the device when it hits the market in early 2018.
