LG’s new home robot looks too adorable to handle and will launch at CES 2024

Sure, LG’s new home assistant robot lacks a good or even easily digestible name, but we’ll give extra points to LG’s smart home Artificial Intelligence (AI) agent for its cuteness.

The new robot, which will be unveiled at CES 2024 (January 9-12), is a small cog in LG’s new efforts to create “Jobless Homes.” The mostly white robot, about 1 foot tall, balances on two foot-shaped wheels and features a friendly face with two large video “eyes.” Below is a fixed “mouth” that is actually a series of cameras and sensors. There’s also a nice wide handle so you can pick up the LG robot if, we assume, it gets in your way.

Its warm demeanor aside, the smart home AI agent is packed with technology, most of it based on Qualcomm’s Robotics RB5 development kit, which is based on Qualcomm’s QRB516. The SoC offers a host of pre-built AI capabilities, such as facial recognition and the ability to capture a wide range of environmental data, including air quality, humidity and temperature.
