Ballie- AI balling robot

When it comes to Robotics, no one thought Samsung would be able to achieve something like this when the CEO of Samsung H.S. Kim unveiled an AI balling robot named as Ballie in the Consumer Electronics Show. Ballie is basically designed to help you in home stuff to make your home a smart home.

Its on-device UI helps the robot to act as a fitness assistant. It also has a mobile interface that helps you to look for ways in order to improve your life as your needs change while using its built-in UI. According to Samsung, this robot can understand and support your needs, and it can also take care of your house.

Mr. Kim then showed a demo video demonstrating things which can Ballie do. In the video, we can see Ballie turning on the TV for a dog when he was lonely and also opening smart curtains. It also has a feature called Robot Vaccum. Whenever Ballie sees a spill, it initiates the Vaccum into action.

In the on-stage demo, we were also able to see the robot following Mr. Kim around the stage and also responding when called. When the CEO asked the robot to say “Hi,” the robot replied in kind of R2-D2-style sound effect.

Ballie can also call for help if it sees someone has fallen from somewhere and can’t get up. The executive vice president of Samsung, Mr. Sebastian Seung, said, “We believe AI is the future of personalized care.” He also said, “We see on-device AI as central to truly personalized experiences. The On-device AI puts you in control of your information and protects your privacy, while still delivering the power of personalization.” 

In trademark filings last month, the name Ballie emerged. According to Samsung, they wanted this name to use for robots with numerous functions such as daily chores, surveillance security, teaching, cleaning, etc.

If you might remember, LG also launched a similar ball type robot in 2016. It was designed to do household stuff, and if you are not at home, it will even take photos of your pets and send them to you.

Samsung has given no hint for the availability and pricing of this robot. We don’t know when you will be able to buy your own Ballie. It’s still very much a concept. All we know is Samsung is still working on it, and we hope Samsung launches it soon.
