Having a personal robot tell you all of your pertinent, and need-to-know information every morning is probably a dream come true for some people, especially if it’s a small rabbit-like robot that kids would find adorable. That’s exactly what Karotz is. A small, rabbit-looking robot that’s meant to help you throughout your day, from waking you up, to telling you how the weather is outside before you step out the door.
The device made its presence known at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, where the company behind the small robot showed the device off. Karotz is your “smart little bunny,” and it’s filled with features. It has voice recognition and voice control, an integrated web cam, and even an RFID chip inside so that if you lose it somewhere in your home, you’ll be able to find it again.
The rabbit robot will be able to read your friends’ Facebook status messages out loud, give you traffic conditions, horoscopes, and more, all based on your verbal requests. It’s able to do this thanks to the integrated WiFi. The Karotz robot is a media player, too, able to play your music when you request it to. For the $199 price tag, the small robot rabbit isn’t a bad deal, especially if you’re looking for a small robot to spruce up your life. It’s up for pre-order now.
