Robots just keep getting more and more intelligent. Rogun is a bot that can become familiarized with faces, while acting as a babysitter / security guard of your home. Rogun will wonder around your house, and play with your kids while broadcasting video to keep an eye on them.
Rogun also acts as a home security system. If someone comes into your home that Rogun doesn’t recognize, the bot automatically calls your cellphone to let you know something is not so kosher at the home front. Designers of Rogun, Korntech, say that the robot stands at around 1-meter tall and will be available in mass production for a price around $5000 a pop. — Andrew Dobrow
