We all need a helping hand at home. In response, Samsung brings us an entire robotic arm!
Bot Handy is another robot unveiled at the recent Samsung CES. This AI-powered arm is designed to distinguish the composition of household items.
As a result, Bot Handy can pick stuff at home with appropriate force. Don’t worry, as it won’t shatter or drop your belongings!

Remember how Iron Man’s suit augments a person’s body? Samsung has a similar technology that may help people walk again.

The Gait Enhancing and Muscle Strengthening exoskeleton have 3 iterations: GEMS-H, GEMS-K, and GEMS-A. Respectively, each version supports the hip, knee, and ankle.
It cushions the impact on these muscles, facilitating movement for people with osteoarthritis and other medical conditions. As a result, it allows them to perform daily tasks they couldn’t do themselves.
Samsung’s CES Vacuum
The tech giant continues to innovate robot vacuum technology.
Samsung unveiled Jetbot 90 AI+, the cleaning robot powered by AI and LiDAR sensors.
The JetBot can identify your household items and plot your home’s interior. It can then map out the most efficient cleaning route that maintains a safe distance from your belongings.
Meanwhile, it uses Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) to track location and detect distance. Jetbot uses this technology from self-driving cars to execute precise movements.
After it finishes cleaning, the JetBot 90 AI+ automatically returns to its Clean Section. Then, it will empty all the collected filth into a bag.
Of course, this new vacuum from Samsung CES 2021 has its smartphone app. Samsung SmartThings lets you control JetBot’s cleaning power via smartphone.
What’s more, the app lets you peek through JetBot’s integrated camera. Use it to have an eye roaming around your home while you’re away.
