Temi, the personal robot/AI assistant with navigation capabilities that enable it to follow its owner around a home or office, was showcased at IFA 2018. It featured a number of software updates since its summertime appearance at the New York City-held CE Week show this past June.
It comes equipped to provide multiple services, including the ability to place hands-free video calls, and giving its owners a place, via a smart tray, for them to set their devices down for wireless charging. It is founded on an open Android platform that leaves openings for software developers to create apps and skills for it to learn.
The current target pricing is $1,500, and deliveries are slated to begin around the 2018 holiday season, said the company’s Alexandra Vilgrain.
