Here Are Six Robot And Smart Device Predictions for 2019
Julian Jagtenberg, Co-Founder and Head of Growth, Somnox created a robot that has one job, to help you sleep better. The Dutch startup, with around $282k in funding, wants to reduce the effects of sleep deprivation with their robot that simulates natural breathing as you hold the robot to fall asleep.
Jagtenberg says that the rise of soft robotics will give way to robots that are easier and safer to interact with. “For example, soft robotic companions can be used in healthcare to assist with repetitive tasks such as medication intake, bathing, etc., because nurses and doctors have a limited amount of time to [..] to nurture patients, which is vitally important for patient recovery time.”
