The world’s first family robot

Alpha 2, the world’s first ‘affordable humanoid butler’, is a voice-controlled droid that can do everything from turn on the lights, help with housework, organise your diary and read your children bedtime stories.And thanks to its 20 servo motors that bend its joints, the robot can also move around like a human, allowing it to do things such as dance and teach yoga.The 17 by 19 inch robot is the work of Chinese firm, UBTech.It uses voice and facial recognition to identify who it’s talking to and what they are asking it to perform.
