Samsung’s Bot Handy robot is the company’s vision of a “better new normal”, because during the global pandemic, there are more people working at home, cooking, eating, and drowning than ever before. As seen in the video shown at the all-virtual 2021 CES Consumer Technology Show on Monday, Bot Handy is very convenient. If you sit for too long, you can not only pick up some unfinished chores, but also remind you of upcoming meetings and stretch your legs.
It is currently only in development-no price or release date has yet to be announced-but Samsung said it is part of increasing technological efforts to simplify family life. The company stated in the meeting description on the CES website: “The technology in your home needs to work harder to help you adapt to this new normal.”
The pandemic technology theme has also taken a step outside the home. Leveraging on the growth of online delivery, lock manufacturer Yale announced that it is now shipping its smart delivery boxes to prevent pirates from the porch when packages arrive. The delivery staff put the package in the storage box, the storage box will be automatically locked, and the homeowner will be notified.
At the same time, when many people don’t cut or dry their hair properly, the Panasonic hair dryer that you don’t need to move (the built-in oscillator does all the work for you) will also buzz. long.
People watch the CES event to understand the direction of technology development in the next few years, but this year’s event can be said to be about the way the industry is catching up with the pandemic and reshaping our lives in the past year.
With the advent of vaccines, it is not clear how long we will stay at home, but these technology companies seem to bet that even if the pandemic is over, our habits will not completely change.
