Should You Let A Security Robot Patrol Your Home?

Why not let a security bot patrol your home? Hell, most of us are do-it-yourself kinda guys, we would just slap a gun on a Roomba and call it good. wink

That scenario just got a little more likely. On display at CES 2016 is a new robotic vacuum from LG. The HOM-BOT Turbo+ employs what LG is calling augmented reality technology. The robot interfaces with your smartphone in some unique ways. To issue instructions to the vacuum, you can designate areas that need cleaning via your phone's camera. Tap on any part of the room in the image and the HOM-BOT Turbo+ will go there and do its thing.
