These September 2016 robots range from intelligent AI toys to egg-shaped camera drones that are designed to capture HD imagery while in flight. The month's most notable standouts include oceanic examples that are modeled after real octopi. These include a lifelike device with tentacles that was developed by researchers at the BioRobotics Institute at Scuola Superiore Sant-Anna along with Harvard University's soft robot concept that also resembles underwater life.

In addition to the month's most notable robot concepts, other memorable innovations include business ventures like drone rental services along with risk-rating startups that give drone owners an account of how safe their device is while predicting dangers associated with different models.

Additional September 2016 robots include helpful reminder bots or chatbot extensions along with intuitive food printers that are said to change the way consumers experience dining outside of the home.
