Californian startup Labrador Systems is at CES 2022 presenting a new domestic robot, designed to make life easier for people with reduced mobility. This assistive robot can carry up to 25 pounds (ten kilograms) of goods, so that they can always be accessible.

The Labrador Retriever takes the form of a small rolling table with a shelf, adjustable in height. It is able to navigate through doorways and maneuver throughout a house, bringing goods to people who have mobility difficulties. This could be laundry, a meal tray, medication or even a package delivered to the door by a courier service.

Users can control the Retriever to move or pick up items from its touch screen, but also from a smartphone or by voice. With support from Amazon, this project is indeed compatible with Alexa.

Addressing people with disabilities as well as individuals who suffer from chronic pain, millions of people could see their daily lives simplified by this type of robot. Labrador plans to bring this one to market by the end of 2023.
