Sil-Bot: Grandma Gets a Crazy Looking Robot Companion!

In an age where we expected robots to be all around us, it seems that even the elderly will be getting their own special robot.

This odd-little robot named Sil-bot is the brainchild of KIST’s Center for Intelligent Robotics. They are currently developing it in Korea. Sil-bot is designed to act as a companion for the elderly, playing games and capable of carrying on basic conversations. The robot also has a spatial camera system that allows it to navigate interiors without bumping into walls.

You got to admit that it’s kind of cute. Its arms look like the wings of a penguin and it’s got some funny facial expressions too. One weird thing is that strange appendage that’s sprouted between its legs. Maybe it’s capable of being a robotic boyfriend as well?

Currently, the Sil-bot costs around $35,000 (USD), but I think that it will get cheaper once it’s mass-produced, that is, if it is ever produced at all.
