Autom is a small companion robot created by Intuitive Automata. Its main goal is to encourage people to have a healthy diet, and exercise regularly with the objective of loosing weight and staying healthy. This robot uses its social capabilities, which include speech and eye-contact, to engage with the users and create a bond with them in the hope of making them more engaged in their diet.
Now the company launched an Indiegogo campaign in order bring this small personal robot to the masses. They also make it developer-friendly so third parties can create applications to run on the robot and benefit from its hardware.
