Multimedia robots are developed to help you control equipment such as camera, TV and audio. Unlike a digital assistant, the multimedia robot does not look static, but can move through space.
Examples of multimedia robots
The DJ IZ, connected to an MP3 player, can create its own rhythm and function as a portable speaker. There are also robots that can do more. For example, the RS Media from WowWee. This looks like a stereotypical robot and can, besides playing music, show photos and videos.
Applications of multimedia robots
The name says it all, it's a gadget. Nice to have and to use, but not necessarily to function at home, in education or in care. Don't feel like listening to music or watching videos on your mobile phone? Then multimedia robots are a nice alternative.
