CareBot By GeckoSystems

carebotgroupA recent press release states that by 2015 consumers will be willing to spend as much as a new car for a multi-tasking humanoid robot.

This is based on a report from ABI Research and GeckoSystems thinks their multi-tasking personal robot called CareBot fits the bill.

The robot would allow virtual visits with elderly relatives and save money from not placing them in a nursing home.  The CareBot  can also be programmed to dial 911 or any number you designate in an emergency.  How it knows what an emergency is I don’t know.  I’m also sure this would probably scare the heck out of my grandmother.

Would you buy a CareBot for your elderly relatives?

Watch the robot navigate a party after the break.
