It wasn’t even that long ago that I was first introduced to the term companion robot. As technology becomes more available and integrated into our daily lives, yet another term has entered my robotic lexicon: Robot Pet

Although not a new term, the concept thrives in the consumer market. Loona robot, or Petbot® Loona, is one such example of this intersection of companionship and robotic pets. 

And I have to say, it’s super cute!

So what is Loona, and what can it do?

As mentioned, Loona is a friendly robot companion/pet that is very much dog-like. KEYI TECH, the manufacturer behind this Smart Petbot, designed and built Loona to respond and act like a playful puppy. 

From how it comes when it’s called to how it follows along and plays, Loona is everything you could want in a pet without the shedding hair and inevitable messes. 

But Loona is more than just a toy dog. Loona comes packed with robust onboard technology and ready to interact on a level no other pet can. In the following sections, I will highlight Loona’s main features and what excites me the most about this fun-loving smart pet robot. 

Loona Robot Features and Capabilities

Interactivity and Engagement

I’ll first highlight how Loona interacts with us and its environment. We can communicate with Loona in two primary ways: With over 100 voice commands made possible through a 4-microphone array and gesture recognition and face recognition through Loona’s built-in high-definition RGB camera. 

Loona can respond to us with sounds through a 2W speaker and graphics on its 2.4″ LCD display and through advanced motion.
 
One of Loona’s more unique features is its ability to connect with Open AI’s Chat GPT. This integration allows us to ask questions and interact with Chat GPT through Loona. 

Not sure what ChatGPT is? It is an advanced AI language model designed to generate human-like text based on the input it receives. So, ask it a question, and it will generate responses by leveraging its training on vast datasets.

Loona has powerful computing power. It has a series of sensors, such as the 3D-ToF (time of flight) and actuators, and a built-in camera, allowing it to take in information and map its surroundings.

Over 10 Interactive Games and new tricks

Loona is your go-to for endless entertainment, packed with over ten interactive games that are as amusing as clever.

Whether engaging in a digital fishing adventure, dodging moles in a lively game of whack-a-mole, or simply frolicking around, Loona is designed to delight and surprise you at every turn, making every moment a playful adventure.
