I agree too! There are already quite a few robot products in the markets that are aimed at a killer app, such as vacuum cleaning robots(like Rumba), home products (like Alexa, Google Home), drive assistant app/products, etc. But it’s really limiting what robots can do and what we imagine robots can do. It’s like those existing robot products are creating apps, but Misty is creating a computer, with focus on emotion connection between people & robots as well as programmability, for developers.
