Robots of all shapes, sizes and abilities at CESWhether they walk, roll or bark, robots are big at CES this year. CNET's Kara Tsuboi brings you a robot roundup from the annual tech conference in Las Vegas.
[MUSIC] Robots are stepping, rolling, and quacking their way into our lives and homes. At CES in Las Vegas, companies showed off robots meant to mimic humans and animals. Like Sophia, who can walk, talk, and even dance. Senior reporter, Lexy Savvides, interviewed her, after she became mobile. Tell me what it was like to take your first steps. [MUSIC] I'm really excited. A little dioriented, but really excited. With artificial intelligence built in, Sofia is made for medical therapy, factory work, and research. She had moved through a human-like environment, used human-like Tools. [SOUND] While you could never replace man's best friend, Sony updated its popular robotic pooch named Aibo. Its nose is a camera, eyes are OLED screens, and it has artificial intelligence built in to recognize different family members. The UBTECH Robot Walker was created to be the first walking robot for you home. It takes voice commands and can even kick a ball. Expect to see robots helping outside the house in places like airports and hotels. At the Renaissance in Las Vegas, relay robots can make deliveries and spot weak WiFi. They're going to signal downstairs and tell our in-room dining staff that that tray has just been pushed out, so we can go up and get it. And there's even the intelligent vision system for companion robot that play scrabble. Scrabble champion Will Anderson said playing the robot was surreal. The robot knows [MUSIC] The whole dictionary really well. It was a close game but the human pulled out the win. But who knows about next year. I'm CNETs Kara Sue Boyd for CBS News Las Vegas.
