Today, Omate has announced their new product called the Omate Yumi. It will be the first home robot built on AI from the ground up with Amazon Alexa and powered by Android.

Yumi is an AI robot that allows the entire family to converse with it, allowing everyone at home to do everything via voice command. From checking the weather to playing a Spotify playlist, and even video calls, this robot has the capacity to do it all. 

Laurent Le Pen, Founder and CEO at Omate says- 

“We have spent over a year from design to engineering in order to give birth to Yumi. It required deep Android software customization to combine high-end audio and state-of-the-art AI into its complex mechanical design. Yumi has been built on AI from the ground up, it is an incredibly smart and cute robot; a personal assistant, a music hub and a smart-home control point all in one.”It's got a multitude of features that are detailed in bullet points below."
