At Misty, we’ve thought a lot about what we could ask a personal robot to do for us. After each brainstorming session, however, we are struck by just how many more things there are that people will think up for Misty robots to do. We know each home, each office, each life has its own unique aspects and challenges.
In the office tasks like reception, telepresence, security patrol, inventory cycle counting or even having the robot trailer carry a microphone to test sound reception throughout a specific space. In the home tasks like seeing if grandma left the oven on, nagging the kids to do their chores, getting the dog off the couch, locating a lost item, or taking candid photos of family members and pets.
We have been amazed at the tasks people we talk to come up with regularly.
For those with robots already, what are you working on? What would you like to work on but need additional guidance or capabilities first?
For those awaiting a robot, what are you thinking about building? What skills could you see being valuable to you?
