ASUS's first robot, Zenbo is a friendly and capable home robot designed to provide assistance and features a full range of capabilities, including the ability to move independently and understand spoken commands. It is designed for everyone and has the specific functionality to help senior family members safeguard their health and well-being, as well as enjoy a connected digital life.

With home safety as a key element in mind, the robot can even monitor the home for emergency situations—such as falls—and immediately respond to them by notifying specified family members on their smartphones. Its cute and expressive demeanour allows it to be a fun and educational playmate for kids, entertaining them with interactive stories and learning games. Apart from that, the Zenbo is also a hands-free household helper that can connect to and control many smart home and traditional devices, including lights, TVs, air conditioners, and more. Homeowners can even use Zenbo’s built-in screen to view visitors at the door and then unlock it with a simple voice command.
