So far, so normal, you might think. Instead of simply acting as a universal remote control for the devices around you, however, KEECKER offers this functionality courtesy of your very own personal robot!
Equipped with powerful video-projection and 360-degree audio- and video-capture systems, KEECKER (which the good folks at Giga OM point out looks a whole lot like a certain Star Wars droid) trundles alongside users on motorized wheels, turning any surface into a screen in the process.
Sound too good to be true? Users will have to wait until Q4 this year to find out, when the (potentially revolutionary) device — which is 16 inches wide, 25 inches tall, packs one terabyte of storage and carries a price tag in the $4,000 to $5,000 region — will be launched. Price includes the robot itself, the necessary app (iOS, Android and Web) and a recharge base.
KEECKER also plans to publish an open API so developers can create apps to extend KEECKER’s functionality even further.
