Video chatting with OhmniLabs new home robot can transform how we connect with others, but with a $1500 price tag
Anyone who is a “Big Bang Theory” fan, may remember when Sheldon transformed into a robot — completely. While not a possibility, yet, OhmniLabs has created an option that’s as close as you’re going to get today. Its home robot, Ohmni, is a rolling, video chat device that lets you talk and project your image, and voice, from anywhere in the world, as long as you have an internet connection. OhmniLabs stopped GearBrain’s office, providing us with an Ohmni robot to test — and we had a blast. Mesmerized with the robot, everyone took pictures, sharing them on social media. We also put Ohmni through our tests to make sure we not only understood how this new robot worked, but who might need an expensive device like Ohmni, and the role it could play in our new connected world.
