ASUS Presents Zenvolution at Computex 2016

ASUS Chairman Jonney Shih took the stage today during the Zenvolution press event at Computex 2016 to unveil Zenbo, the first ASUS robot, along with a portfolio of third-generation mobile and computer products.

The line-up includes the all-new ZenFone 3 family, featuring ZenFone 3 Deluxe, the new flagship ASUS smartphone with advanced camera technology; ZenFone 3, a feature-packed smartphone that brings premium design and empowering performance to users; and ZenFone 3 Ultra, an powerful smartphone with a 6.8-inch Full HD display. Also announced were ZenBook 3, an ultra-sleek and lightweight notebook with a premium aluminum design, along with ASUS Transformer 3 and ASUS Transformer 3 Pro.

ASUS Zenbo

ASUS Zenbo arose from Chairman Jonney Shih's ambition to enable robotic computing for every household. Zenbo is a friendly and capable home robot designed to provide assistance, entertainment, and companionship to families. The robot is able to move independently and understand spoken commands.

Priced at US$599, Zenbo is designed for everyone, but he has specific functionality that helps senior family members safeguard their health and well-being as well as enjoy a connected digital life. As a home care assistant, he provides spoken reminders of important information, such as doctor's appointments, medication and exercise schedules, and anything else that needs to be remembered. Zenbo also monitors the home for emergency situations - such as falls - and immediately responds to them by notifying specified family members on their smartphones. When they receive an emergency notification, family members can remotely control Zenbo to move nearby and use Zenbo's built-in camera to visually check on their loved one. Zenbo is also a friendly companion - he can make video calls, use social media, shop, and stream movies and TV shows, using voice commands.

Zenbo is also an educational playmate for kids who entertains them with interactive stories and learning games. With his built-in stereo sound system, Zenbo can play children's favorite songs and even dance along to the music. Zenbo is also an expert storyteller who keeps children entertained during the day and helps them fall asleep at night. Zenbo includes a built-in library of stories that he tells in a variety of entertaining voices, while displaying accompanying images on his screen and controlling the room lighting. Zenbo also comes with educational games and an interactive encyclopedia.

In addition to working with seniors and kids, Zenbo is also a hands-free household helper. Zenbo can connect to and control many smart home and traditional devices, including lights, TVs, air conditioners, and more. Homeowners can even use Zenbo's built-in screen to view visitors at the door and then unlock it with a voice command. He can also help out in the kitchen, reading recipes out loud and functioning as a voice-controlled timer. With his built-in camera and ability to move around the house, Zenbo is a family photographer who helps preserve special and everyday moments alike. When homeowners are away, Zenbo provides peace of mind that their home is safe by acting as a remote-controlled home security camera that is accessible from anywhere via an smartphone app.

Zenbo supports a growing number of custom apps. The free Zenbo Developer Program provides members access to the Zenbo SDK and a library of information they need to bring their ideas to life.
