Kuri Home Robot

Alexa, Siri, and Google's Assistant have gotten us used to the idea of talking to robots. The Kuri Home Robot aims to making living with them commonplace, too. Standing 20 inches tall, a foot wide, and weighing in a 14 lbs, Kuri bears at least a passing resemblance to Big Hero 6's Baymax, no doubt helped along by animations designed by a Pixar vet. Powerful motors enable Kuri to follow you around, even over carpet and thresholds, multiple mics ensure it can hear what you're saying, and a built-in 1080p camera lets you check in on things when you're away. Kuri can also recognize faces, detects objects and automatically maps out your house, and has powerful speakers that can read stories, play music, or just serve to speak its playful robot language.

  • Kobi Lawn Robot

    Autonomous lawnmowers have been around for a few years now. But the Kobi Lawn Robot is far more than just a high-tech grass-cutter. In the summer, it can keep your lawn mowed, using weather forecasts to know when to cut and mulching the clippings to keep your yard healthy. In the fall, a separate module lets it clear both your yard and driveway of leaves, and during the winter, the snow module dutifully clears your driveway so you don't have to venture out in the cold — unless you want to, of course. It's powered by quiet, efficient brushless motors and a lithium-ion battery, and will automatically return to its charging station when it's running low on juice.

  • DJI Mavic Pro Foldable Drone

    Having solved the problems of steady video and (mostly) autonomous flying, this year's crop of new drones are focusing on a third obstacle to regular use: size. The DJI Mavic Pro Foldable Drone offers a stabilized 4K camera, a range of 4.3 miles, and a flight time of 27 minutes, yet folds down into a package not much larger than a water bottle. The new FlightAutonomy system, outfitted with a slew of cameras, range finders, and sensors, can position, navigate and plan routes for the drone, avoiding obstacles at speeds up to 22 mph. A Sport Mode lets you hit speeds of up to 40 mph, and a new, optional dedicated controller has a built-in touchscreen, an improved video link system, and likewise folds down to let you carry the whole system in a normal bag instead of a dedicated case.
