After several public stops at tech shows including CE Week and IFA, Temi the personal robot became available to the public on October 1. Described as an entertainment system for the whole family, Temi is a mobile, personal robot assistant designed for the home or office. The fully mobile and autonomous device combines several emerging technology categories into a single user experience.
Temi is available for preorder now through the company website. Additionally, the company has teamed up with select b8ta stores across the country to bring the personal assistant robot into those stores for in-person demos.
Powered by AI, Temi is built around a system of 16 different sensors and cameras that allow it to navigate its environment and deliver “day-to-day value to its users.” Temi is capable of recognizing its owners, distinguishing between different voices, and assisting with various smart tasks—ranging from playing music, to ordering food, to controlling connected smart home gadgets. Essentially, Temi functions as a smart home hub, online content/video distribution system, and smart speaker all rolled into one. Further, Temi is able to learn and familiarize itself with its users and their likes and preferences to offer customized content and personalized services.
