The 2021 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) saw a lot of impressive new tech announced, but the Samsung Robot Butler might be the most exciting of all. Problem is, a lot of people don’t know whether to take it at face value. It’s so outlandish that most seem to be questioning whether it’s legit or a hoax. So, is the Samsung Robot Butler real? Here’s the need-to-know on the Samsung Bot Care and Samsung Bot Handy following their CES 2021 reveal.
Is Samsung really making a Robot Butler?
Robot butlers have been a science fiction pipedream for decades. Most people wouldn’t say no to a nonsentient housekeeper to share their chores with, but up until now it just hasn’t been realistic.
Samsung’s Robot Butler is real. The tech giant is currently developing two models — Samsung Bot Care and Samsung Bot Handy. Bot Care is a “robotic assistant and companion,” while Bot Handy (true to its name) adopts a more hands-on approach around the home. Utilizing a long robotic arm, the Samsung Bot Handy can clean dishes, wash clothes, pour wine, and more.
Is there a Samsung Robot Butler release date and price?
Both of the Samsung Robot Butlers are still in development. As a result, there’s no Samsung Bot Care and Samsung Bot Handy price or release date at the moment.
If the robotic butlers do come to market — there’s no guarantee, as plenty of technology showcased at CES has never received a commercial release — they’ll most likely cost a pretty penny. It’s almost impossible to make an accurate estimate without any equivalent competition, but it wouldn’t be surprising if neither model was easily affordable for the average consumer.
Interested in tech news from the realm of gaming? Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt RED recently shared some details on what went wrong with the game, in addition to outlining a timescale to set things straight. As a result of the studio’s shift in focus, paid DLC has been delayed.
Fortnite also just updated to version 3.00, but the changes aren’t too exciting for such a landmark patch.
