If you have a dog or cat you can monitor your pet using a special camera, even being passed from the house. However, what if you have fish? For fish created by the self-propelled cleaning device MOAI, which has a built-in HD camera, allowing a sneak peek at the fish in different parts of the aquarium, when you can't do it personally.
MOAI cleans the aquarium, while its outdoor unit motorized, in fact, it's a robot. He moves automatically, self. Users can customize the cleaning schedule via an accompanying iOS/Android app on your smartphone. In addition, the robot is equipped with a built in camera with a resolution of 1080p. Because the device is associated with a home Wi-Fi network, users can view the camera image in real time, wherever they were.
Created an Autonomous robot for aquarium fish
For MOAI you can see how he moves by himself, or you can use the app to move it up/down/left/right manually. In addition, you can save some space in the aquarium in the device memory as "favorite", to watch the fish with the most appropriate angles. If users see something they like, they can take pictures or record video. When the battery is flat MOAI automatically swims to the charging station, which is placed in the aquarium, to save myself from having to constantly charge the device.

The Japanese company Panasonic in the framework of the exhibition of consumer electronics IFA 2017, which takes place in Berlin in the first week of September, presented a robotic refrigerator that responds to voice commands and independently moves around the room. It is reported N+1 with reference to CNET.
With the development and cheapening of electronics appliances gradually become more complex and acquire additional features. Today the technology of speech recognition allow you to integrate voice-almost anywhere, from car to refrigerator. Also popular extra screens, wireless modules, and touch control, but other modifications of appliances, as a rule, still not too popular — for example, an independent movement that while mass has got only ribopyranose.
Now Panasonic has introduced the self-propelled refrigerator mini-bar that knows how to navigate in the room and responds to voice commands of the owner. A small device on a wheeled platform can independently drive up to the desired point, focusing with a set of depth sensors and laser sensors. Additionally, the refrigerator is linked to a database through which it can recommend snacks that are appropriate to the beverages stored inside.
According to Engadget, in the future, Panasonic is considering the installation of a heating surface at the top of the device for serving hot dishes. It is currently unknown whether Panasonic serial commercial release of the self-propelled mini-bar, or he plays the role technology demonstrator.
There are other unusual examples of automation in everyday life. For example, a Dutch startup Innovation In Motion introduced a device for automatically opening and closing curtains as the South Korean company Narah has developed a clever robopolis that allows you to automate devices managed by traditional switches and buttons.
Televisions with 4K resolution have not yet managed to get wide distribution, and the company Sharp has already announced a model with a resolution of 8K.
