Other new features include new track wheels that collapse up into the robot’s body to absorb shock and help it go over obstacles like door threshold, and an ergonomic handle to make it easier to transport.

But don’t expect Kuri to respond in English—or in any other human language. Mayfiled says Kuri “speaks “robot,” which makes it extra cute. Kuri chirps, beeps, and bloops. This helps with a big challenge in human-robot interaction. When robots try to communicate in human language, they often make mistakes that frustrate the user. Even when it’s not annoying, sometimes it’s just uncanny and creepy. Mayfield reduced the chance of that confusion by giving Kuri a language of its own. However, if you need to use Kuri to deliver a message to someone across the house, you can use the app to

Kuri knows the layout of your house because when you first bring the robot home, it uses a laser sensor array to create a map. It then uses that map for reference, so it keeps track of its location. This map makes it easy to tell Kuri where to go. You can say “Kuri, go to the kitchen,” and it will know exactly how to get there.

For those who find this robot stalking feature a bit creepy, the company says you can always review the photos and videos and delete what you don’t want. And you can also program the robot to avoid filming in specific rooms. This is useful if, say, you don’t want Kuri filming in the bathroom.

To do that, Kuri has two high definition 1080p cameras, one behind each eye. These cameras take videos intermittently throughout the day, capturing candid moments. You can then review those clips through the app, which runs on iOS and Android, and choose which ones you like best. Then Kuri’s machine learning and image processing kicks in: Based on which images you favorite or delete, Kuri learns to take videos that you’ll like.
