This is Kuri. Californian start-up Mayfield Robotics’ first domestic robot, which has no trouble answering all your calls with head movements, sounds and even… facial expressions! Yes, that’s right. Unveiled just a couple of weeks ago, this insanely adorable home robot was programmed to monitor connected products, as well as help you run your home and make a unique personality out of it.

Kuri’s not very tall. In fact, he’s barely 50 centimeters high, weighing approximately 6 kilograms. It is a small robot with a round head and very large eyes that open and close accordingly to its response. It also features a somewhat stout body, and appears to have arms on its sides!

Kuri comes with a dock, where it can rest and get prepared for a whole new day around the house! He’s prepared to recognize sounds and faces, making it almost part of the family! However, it’s its endearing personality – like many robots across pop culture, R2-D2, Baymax, BB-8 – that completely wins us over.

Mayfield Robotics’ domestic robot also comes prepared to be connected to any smartphone, making it easy to surveil, seeing as it also comes equipped with a camera that allows users to check on the house when away, as well as four microphones for voice commands, dual speakers for music playback, and Wi-Fi connectivity!

“While insanely cute on the outside, Kuri contains serious technologies on the inside that represent the latest developments in smartphones, gaming, and robotics,” said Kaijen Hsiao, chief technology officer and co-founder of Mayfield Robotics. “We hope Kuri introduces people – especially kids – to the power of technology and can inspire a new world of possibilities for their future,” she added.

Amazing as Kuri is, we all know other home robots like Amazon’s Echo, for example. So, what does this particular domestic robot bring to the table that’s new? First, Mayfield emphasized the importance of its personality during the design process. Moreover, and unlike other home robots, Kuri is on wheels. It is also voice-controlled, responding to all sorts of things around the house!
