Meet bearbot, it is a household remote that is used to control household devices. Such as TV, lights, air conditioners, and much more. It is created by Mu Design which it is located in Luxembourg. For each device, it costs about $85-$99 depending on the locations.  You can control the bearbot by hand gestures. Therefore, it can dim/turn on your lights, adjust your thermostat, and lower/raise your curtain blinds. You could also tell commands to the bearbot by your smartphone app. In fact, the bearbot can make facial expressions to you just like sneezing or yawning. The battery life of the bearbot is four hours by you can charge it by a induction charger. Another thing is, if the bearbot is 16 feet away from the household devices (TV, light bulbs, etc.), it will disconnected itself since it will lose its signals. Lastly, it is 100% recyclable which is made from plastic that is recyclable.

In my opinion, this is related to engineering because engineers have to work together to design and create the bearbot. Therefore, during this process, the engineers will encounter mistakes and problems. So, they will create solutions to fix those mistakes/problems. Finally, the group of engineers will give out ideas to design the bearbot.
