Ubtech's bipedal robot walks the walk at CES

Ubtech is showing off the Walker at CES 2018, a bipedal robot that can walk a security patrol in your home and will respond to your voice commands. The Walker won't be ready until 2019, and by that time, the company hopes to add working arms as well.
For now, the bot detects motion and can alert you if something's amiss on its patrol. It can record security incidents with its built in camera, and you can interact with Walker via a touchscreen or with your voice.
