Blue Frog’s BuddyOn the other end of things is Buddy, a smart in-home assistant that can control internet-of-things devices, act as a walking talking calendar, and even be a smart alarm clock or security guard. There’s not much else to say here, other than that’s in an impressive, capable, and potentially practical addition to your home — an extension of an already partially smart-ified, internet connected life. That’s pretty cool. Until it lets the robo-dogs in and they kill you in your sleep. I’m serious. He’s not to be trusted.

She’s definitely human-like, able to carry on basic conversation, and even been made a citizen of Saudi Arabia. She’s also gotten herself into a twitter fight with model and actress Chrissy Teigen. And now plenty are saying that spat will be the first mark against humanity in the coming robo-human war. [email protected] It looks like we’re both at #CES! Want to meet up and say hi?
