One of Mike's prediction for the smart home in 2017 was that robots would become an ever more important part of the smart home. While we aren't quite upon the era of fully independent humanoid robots, we are seeing more consumer robots in the form of vacuums, lawn mowers, drink makers and more.
In this podcast we talk to iRobot's head VP of technology Chris Jones about the current state of consumer robotics, how he sees robots becoming an important part of the smart home, and where he sees things going over the next few years.
