Targeted at independent living for older people, Moneual‘s Silver Care Robot is an air purifier that moves around the home to clean the air and improve the air quality, much like a Roomba does for dirt. But the robot also monitors the vital signs of an owner who is wearing wristwatch-type monitor. In the event of emergency, the robot can summon assistance via a wireless internet connection.
Built on Microsoft’s Windows 7 with a touch screen, the user can access simple functions such as playing music or making a voip call.
Available later in 2011 for over $8000.
