LG wants to get the smart-home ball rolling with its adorably pint-sized roving bot that's supposedly packed full of connected tech.
Mobile World Congress 2016 is full of cool connected tech, but LG's all-new Rolling Bot is surely the cutest.
Adorableness aside, LG claims that its roving bot is decked out with security, pet and other general smart-home features.
So, in theory, while you're away at work, this little robot could be roaming the halls, capturing video footage, as needed, and sending you alerts.
Apparently, it can also play with your pet.
Knowing how my dog reacted to a robot vacuum I once tested at home, I'm not sure how well all pets will take to this "new friend."
Either way, it's definitely a fun new take on home monitoring -- something that we look forward to trying out in the CNET Smart Home.
WIth Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, the LG Rolling Bot is supposed to be able to control non-LG, non-security smart-home devices, too, like your TV and lights.
It's also equipped with an infrared sensor, a microphone, a speaker and a laser.
