Ballie is an AI device just like Siri or Alexa, but Samsung was able to innovate on the design. It sets its self apart from the competition by being able to roll around the house to stay with you and make your life easier. It will be able to communicate with the other AI devices in your house, such as your smart thermostat, blinds, mirror, vacuum and many other things you may have. A pro they showed to having a rolling helper with a camera is that it can stay with you. This will help you communicate with it without having to shout into a different room for one. Ballie would also be able to roam around the house and make sure everything is running smoothly, even when you are not around. For instance, it could tell if your pet had made a mess and tell the vacuum to clean it up! Just recently at CES in Las Vegas, Samsung released their new virtual assistance Ballie in a long line of products. Ballie’s release date has not been confirmed, but we hope it will be released to the public later this year. It is safe to say that this project needed a lot of engineering with all the moving parts and their strive to make it small and convenient.
