Otto Robot: Samsung Robot

Unlike the Echo though, it also has an HD camera that can recognize faces or act as a security camera. There's also a small screen on it that displays a semblance of a face plus a variety of animations depending on the application. If the weather is "rain," it'll show animations of rain drops, for example. As you can see in the video demo here, it can also "sing" and "dance" by bobbing its head around.

Starship Robot: Delivery Food Robot

The company is manufacturing – and currently testing in local markets around the world – robots that can deliver up to three shopping bags’ worth of goods within 30 minutes to homes within a 3-mile radius. The company, according to CEO Heinla, is “reinventing” the so-called last mile of transportation, and it’s currently running tests with commercial partners such as London’s takeout food delivery service Just Eats that involves the robots ferrying meals to customers.

Windowmate Robot: Window Cleaning Robot

Spring cleaning just got easier...maybe. Attach the Windowmate to each side of your window, and it'll make its way in Zamboni-like rows until both sides of the pane are clean. It's essentially a robot mop with sponges attached to the base that works vertically.

Kengoro Robot: The Amazing Sweating Robot

At 5½ feet tall, its face fixed between a grin and a grimace, the humanoid robot Kengoro is something of a synthetic Arnold Schwarzenegger. That is not to say the machine, created by the University of Tokyo’s JSK laboratory, is a recursive time-traveling assassin. Rather, Kengoro is a sweaty beefcake among metal bipeds.

MekaMon Robot: Spider Robot

MekaMon, the product of startup Reach Robotics, is in many ways the embodiment of battle robot fanatics’ dreams: a fully articulated, remote-controlled robot that engages enemies in combat. Unlike the robots on TV, though, the “losers” of battles escaped unscathed. And combat’s just the start of what they’re capable of.

Sophia Robot: Lifelike Humanoid Robot

Sophia defies conventional thinking of what a robot should look like. Designed to look like Audrey Hepburn, Sophia embodies Hepburn’s classic beauty: porcelain skin, a slender nose, high cheekbones, an intriguing smile, and deeply expressive eyes that seem to change color with the light. If ever there were a robot with a simple elegance people can’t help but appreciate, it would be Sophia.

Salto Robot: Berkeley's Leaping Robot

Robotics at UC Berkeley have designed a small robot that can leap into the air and then spring off a wall, or perform multiple vertical jumps in a row, resulting in the highest robotic vertical jumping agility ever recorded. The agility of the robot opens new pathways of locomotion that were not previously attainable. The researchers hope that one day this robot and other vertically agile robots can be used to jump around rubble in search and rescue missions.

Zenbo Robot: A Ridiculous Home Robot

Meet Zenbo, a new robot friend for seniors, kids, and anybody else who wants to invite a less cute, real-world version of BB-8 into their own home. Asus chairman Jonney Shih showed off Zenbo on stage at Computex today, describing the robot as a smart home manager, security guard, hands-free kitchen assistant, and family photographer.

Hub Robot: Home Robot

The Amazon Echo doesn’t have it, nor does the Google Home. But the LG Hub Robot boasts a screen. The voice-activated assistant, on display at CES 2017, is a little robot that has blinking eyes and changes its face based on what program is running. It’s actually quite cute, and sort of looks a bit like an electronic Russian nesting doll.
