Emotibots are shape-shifting social home robots interacting with humans. Robots will in the future increasingly populate households, and soft robots are intrinsically safer for humans than conventional robots made from metal and plastic parts.
This concept combines several cutting-edge future technologies: an outer wire mesh made from shape memory alloy, an interior of electroactive polymer artificial muscles, perovskite solar cells and low-power IoT components with multiway sensing. The mesh can change its external form through micro-currents applied to each structural wire. Electrochromes provide for color changes, while moving activity is controlled by electroactive polymer strands. Electricity is provided through perovskite components.
Envisioned to be the next generation of smart personal assistants, Emotibots learn about their environments and communicate through shapes, colors, movement and sound. They are small, lightweight, soft, translucent and shape-shifting companions, helping the kids with their homework or assisting grandma with writing an email.
