These October 2016 robot trends range from live-streaming underwater drones to smart home vacuum robots that make everyday household chores an easy feat. In addition to a handful of multifunctional drone innovations, the month's other standouts include HD security camera vacuums that protect one's home while doubling as a cleaning device.

Other notable examples include robot-run pizzerias -- Zuma Pizza replaces human staff with artificially intelligent workers -- along with retina-repairing droids like Robotic Retinal Dissection Device (R2D2) which is changing the way eye doctors treat the ailments of their patients.

In addition to making household chores easier and advancing the medical field, these October 2016 robot examples are also streamlining travel plans and making at-home entertainment a more immersive experience than ever before.
