Who is Phi?
Phi is a support robot, helping less fortunate people at home. Phi takes care of some of the small talk ‘you had a good night?’, but also support the client to take their medicine in time. It may sounds weird to have robot as a friend at your place, but if you have to choose between being lonely or having a small chat, this robot certainly has a lot of advantages. Robotics is here to stay and more and more applications will be soon visible.
