Samsung Unveils Ballie: Your Personal Home Robot

For those who fondly recall the droid BB-8 from Star Wars, Samsung is bringing a touch of sci-fi to reality with its latest home assistant robot, "Ballie." While not as round or cute as BB-8, Ballie is designed to perform various tasks around the house, making it your personalized home companion.

Slightly larger than a bowling ball, Ballie operates autonomously, utilizing artificial intelligence to understand and adapt to users' habits. Whether reminding you to water the plants, feed the dog, or projecting videos or calls onto walls or floors through its built-in projector, Ballie aims to be a versatile addition to your home.

Similar to home assistant devices like Alexa or Google Home, Ballie takes it a step further with its ability to move independently and its capacity to learn and improve over time. It can use its camera to monitor your home or pets when you're away, answer calls, and even control lights and other devices.

Interestingly, Samsung had introduced a smaller version of Ballie four years ago, which never made it to the market. The latest iteration is a significant upgrade, but as of now, Samsung has not disclosed a release date or pricing details for Ballie.
