It’s only a matter of time before humans welcome autonomous robotic pets into their homes, and the Samsung M-1 just might be the first. Rather than a normal head, it comes equipped with an interactive LED screen of sorts that can display various expressions and / or notifications. Since the central computing unit runs off an artificial intelligence system, it automatically learns new tasks and adapts to your lifestyle.
In other words, you can teach it how to play catch, and over time, it will become an expert as well as beg for a game when it’s long overdue. Some may find this headless robot quit creepy, while others may embrace the technology, knowing that it’s capable of much more than a normal dog. Now the one thing this robot will never have is the ability to show emotion, unfortunately.
