A Robot To Help With Your Personal Health

Pillo is an intelligent robot dedicated to the health and well being of the family. No matter what age the family member is, it can answer health and fitness questions, and securely manage any medication or vitamins. It will automatically reorder them, as supplies get low. It will give alerts and reminders when medication becomes due. It stores them in tamper proof containers, and will only dispense to the person they are intended for.

As it uses voice and facial technology it will know which member of the family is asking the questions, and will connect them to a healthcare professional if necessary. The robot saves you the job of scouring the Internet, and will give you information you can trust from verified sources.

If you are tracking your activity with a wireless device, Pillo can track and store the information for you. The same can be said if you are losing weight and want to keep track of how much you lose.

Robots To Make Life Easier

These are just two of the robots that have been developed to make our lives easier, there are many more. As technology progresses so new innovations will materialise, and robots will be able to do even more than they do now. Robots are here to stay, and they are more likely than ever to become part of family life in the not too distant future.
