Apple is working on a robotics project under the leadership of John Giannandrea, the goal of which is to develop tracking devices for home use and a robotic arm.

Samsung’s Bot Handy and Ballie and Amazon’s Astro represent early attempts at home robots, though their practical use is limited. Focused, single-purpose robots like the Ring Always Home Cam show promise due to their predictability and specific functionality, but robots still struggle with the unpredictability of real homes.

Generative AI can help robots learn tasks, but it is far from solving the challenges of home robotics. For now, home robots are likely to remain clumsy and limited in their capabilities.
