LOVOT, the robot that loves to be tickled will melt your heart

LOVOT is a cuddly robot companion with one mission: spread the love!

Created by Tokyo startup GROOVE X, Lovot uses deep learning techniques to autonomously decide what actions to take. It can remember up to 1,000 people but will pay special attention to its owner. It can make an accurate scan of an entire room and find them immediately.

It is a cutting edge piece of technology. It is highly mobile, packed with 10 CPU cores, many sensors, microphones and cameras. Using Bluetooth, wireless LAN and infrared, Lovot can communicate with its Nest station or other Lovots.

Lovot earned the Best Robot of CES 2019 Award from The Verge, which noted that Lovot “feels revolutionary”.
