Home Control, Music, Telepresence and Much More from your Personal Robotics Companion

SHEnetics and WowWee today announced a strategic partnership that will see the leading consumer robotics company and the pioneer in intelligent digital assistant technology collaborate to launch the industry’s most powerful personal home robotics companion.

WowWee’s team of robotics designers and engineers are currently working closely with SHEnetics’ team of AI experts to jointly develop the robotics industry’s first truly intelligent consumer robot. Both teams bring extensive experience in their related fields and are combining their efforts to create a highly productive, personalized robot to the retail markets.

“We are entering an exciting era in technology where robots are connected to a powerful cloud-based brain to deliver new and highly productive consumer experiences. Imagine Siri or Cortana in a personal robot for your home, that speaks 10 languages, plays music, places phone calls and searches the web for any information,” said Dean Weber, President of SHEnetics. “WowWee is a leader in the robotics field with sales in major retail outlets and we are honored to work with their team to deliver on this vision.”

Target functionality of the new generation of intelligent robots will focus on home control, music, reminders, alerts, VoIP / video calling, telepresence, language translation and information search.

“The next generation of WowWee robots will continue to surprise with advanced mechanical capabilities, sensor systems and electronics,” said Peter Yanofsky, President of WowWee USA. “The team at SHEnetics is providing onboard intelligence for these systems and we are looking forward to seeing our robots come to life with even deeper intelligence and awareness.
