The QNAP 'AfoBot' personal robot was showcased at CES 2018 by the company as a new solution that could revolutionize the way that consumers connect within their home and get tasks done. Equipped with voice interaction and face recognition, the robot offers the ability to host video calls, stream your favorite content, keep you up-to-date with your schedule and much more. The accompanying app enables users to communicate directly with the robot and family members for a streamlined method of staying connected.
The QNAP 'AfoBot' comes as a stationary piece of robotic equipment for the home that could be perceived as less invasive given that it doesn't rove around. This makes it more applicable for consumers who might be a bit hesitant about allowing a robotic solution into their home.
