ElliQ, A Social Home Robot for Older Adults, Now Available for Pre-Order

IEEE Spectrum

After nearly a year of beta testing, ElliQ is the latest robot wanting to be a part of your life

Intuition Robotics has been working on its ElliQ “proactive social robot for older adults” for only a few years—the company, founded in 2016, has managed to secure funding from Toyota AI Ventures, Samsung, and iRobot, among others. For nearly a year, Intuition has been testing ElliQ in the homes of beta testers aged 62-97 in the San Francisco Bay Area, and things have apparently gone well enough that they’ve decided that the robot is ready to go on sale.
