Autom, Your Dieting Buddy
Need some help with that diet? Autom was designed to sit on your counter and remind you that you don't need that extra piece of pumpkin pie stashed in your fridge. She keeps track of what you eat and when you exercise, then provides feedback, advice and encouragement. When CEO of Intuitive Automata Cory Kidd tested the bot on humans, the results were that not only did they not want to give her back, they stayed on their diet for at least 8 weeks. Due out next year, perhaps this cute service robot would be much better than a nagging spouse/partner.
