@michael_beebe42 thanks for sharing - how are you seeing Kuri connect (or replace) home assistants?

Kuri responds to voice input, and in this way is similar to other devices like Google Home or Amazon Echo.

@sanemavcil This thing is pretty sweet. Reminds me of a droid from Star Wars... lt's like Alexa mixed BB8.

This is like having your own functional R2D2! Considering a Roomba is roughly on the same price tier, I dont think it is really that expensive at all. Looking forward to see the progress as this has so much potential. The videos are pretty cool, although I found the "wife's parents" one a bit odd :)

Very cute! Though I think not many people will see the appeal in this robot for 600 dollars. Maybe if it were priced a bit lower (though that might not be possible) it would?

@jesse__muller considering its a walking talking robot, and costs less than an iPhone, I thought that was pretty cheap to be honest!
