It is fairly evident from the technology and products showcased at the SDC 2016 event that Samsung is pushing heavily towards the Internet of Things. The company demonstrated Otto, a cute personal assistant robot that could not only answer questions but also double up as a security monitoring device.

Otto is essentially a home companion smart robot that can answer questions similar to Siri or Amazon Echo. However, it also features a display and a high-definition camera, so it can double up as a home security guard. The Internet-connected robot can broadcast live video to mobile devices and PCs. Its camera can be moved in various directions using a mobile camera. More importantly, it can also talk to and control smart home appliances like an air conditioner or a refrigerator.

The smart robot is based on Samsung’s Artik 10 board computer that will be available for purchase next month. The Artik 10 is a prototype and Samsung doesn’t have any intention make it commercially available to consumers. It is essentially a live example of what could be made using the company’s Artik board computers. Samsung wants IoT enthusiasts to experiment using the Artik 10 and make smart devices like the Otto.
