Seniors from all over the world can now make the most out of the advancements in technology and stay connected to everyone around them. While personal assistants and elderly care apps have gone mainstream years ago, a literal “aging companion” device will soon be released on the market.
ElliQ, the latest personal assistant for the elderly, is poised to revolutionize the world by being the first real personal assistant and close friend of seniors.
What Is ElliQ?
This product created by the Israel-based startup Intuition Robotics, has already received tens of rave reviews, although it has not been released on the market yet.
This unique robot companion is a powerful mix of Android tablet, personal assistant engine such as Siri or Alexa, artificial intelligence or AI, and software apps that allow seniors to stay in touch with all of their loved ones. What really sets this unique “aging companion” apart from the competition is the attached head that literally moves while talking. In simpler terms, the head animatronic keeps seniors engaged by moving and interacting actively with them. You can take a quick glance at how ElliQ moves and behaves by watching this video:

Without further ado, here is how this modern robotic device can help make seniors’ lives easier.
No More Loneliness
Thanks to the revolution in computer-voice interfaces, the scientists from Intuition Robotics have managed to create a fully automatic robotic that can visually interact with you. According to the company, their new device will help solve the loneliness problem by enhancing interaction with other humans through social media apps and by offering the benefits of a lively companion by your side.
This engaging robot will keep you entertained all day and night long, even when there is no one around. All your family members are at a voice command distance. Moreover, you can make tons of new friends due to the embedded apps and voice control commands. Loneliness is as good as gone with ElliQ.
Keep Tabs on Medication and Tasks
Another huge benefit of using ElliQ on a daily basis is that it helps you remember when to take your medication, when to exercise and when to perform certain daily tasks. This device includes several advanced calendar and alarm apps that help you stay in control of every aspect of your life. Once set up, do not worry again about forgetting to take your medication or missing any more important appointments.
Make Your Life Easier
Using body language, speech interface, lights, sounds and images, ElliQ can express itself and can make itself easily understood by anyone. As a senior, you can definitely capitalize on this “emotive” robot and listen to its proactive “advices”. Based on the environment and your preferences, this smart device learns continually with the sole purpose to make your life easier. You might even get taken aback by ElliQ’s proactivity in recommending you to try different activities or do certain things.
ElliQ is definitely one of the most innovative gadgets of the year. It could be your lifesaving boat, a gold mine for your retirement. Stay informed about its release date and make sure you check it out as it hits the market – it may become much more expensive once people try it out and leverage its benefits. You can join the waiting list now if you are residing in the United States.
