This home automation bot is both fun to play with and highly functional.

Called the 'Bearbot' and designed by 'Vivien Muller,' the smart device is able to control many aspects of the home -- making the homeowner's life a little bit more convenient. The small autonomous bot has a screen and ears that make it look like a bear and it works by responding to its own sign language -- taking away the need to touch and preventing the spread of germs. Bearbot can control a variety of home devices including cellphones, laptops, TVs, light bulbs, shutters, music, air conditioning and the thermostat. The endearing design of the robot is another benefit, as the bear on the screen shows spontaneous facial expressions.

As most homes are connected to a multitude of technologies, the Bearbot helps to control those in a way that is simple and fun.
