At CES 2021, Samsung presented a robot butler/assistant called Bot Handy. CES is the tech industry’s largest annual conference where companies come together and launch exciting, innovative technologies that aren’t yet ready for market.

Bot Handy is currently “in development”, with no firm price or sale date. The device uses “advanced AI” to “identify” objects by shape, size and weight. The robot gets its “hands-on” name because it “helps you get the job done around the house.”

Samsung said:

Bot Handy uses AI to understand objects, like a glass mug or ceramic plate, taking note of their shape and materials to work as your trusted partner. The handy robot can move around and do things like set the table or put away groceries. It flips the script on what a robot might look like in your home.

Samsung showed off other robots at the same event, including a watchdog robot to help keep you safe, the Jetbot 90 AI+ smart vacuum cleaner with LiDAR technology and cameras to autonomously clean your home while avoiding items such as cables, and Samsung Bot Care” robotic assistant and companion. The Jetbot 90 AI+ will be available for purchase earlier than those other robots.

A single long arm with a mechanical hand on the end sets Bot Handy apart from the rest of Samsung’s robots, and it’s the only one that can pour a glass of wine. Bot Handy is black and white and features a screen for a face with eyes that change shape to express emotions.

Bot Handy uses “appropriate force to grab and move household items and objects,” Samsung points out. The robot butler can help you with dirty laundry, dirty dishes and even delicate tasks like putting flowers in a vase.
