Reader Poll: Would You Use Robotic Furniture in Your Home?


Smart devices such as Alexa and Google Home are becoming more common in today’s homes, and people can now control things like their thermostat and lights through an app on their phone. Next up, robotic furniture?

Curbed Boston recently shared an article about a robotic set-up “Ori”, that can transform from a bed, to a closet, to a work space with the push of a button or even a voice command. This robotic furniture aims to make a small space feel larger by changing the layout based on your current needs.

After completing a pilot program, the company is now making these units available to developers in the greater Boston area. What do you think?

Although the initial studies were done in studios, this could also be applied to a space in a multi-room apartment. Would you use robotic furniture in your home? Vote in our poll and add your comments in the section below.

  1. Seems like a good way to get rid of your spouse. “Hey Alexa, can you squash my husband?”. Like sending him through a trash compactor. Lorraina Bobbet would have loved this.

  2. NO WAY! No Robotic Furniture and NO DRIVERLESS CARS either! Too many things can go wrong with these things, if they are “internet controlled” or “Cell{SMART} Phone controlled” any hacker could make these things do UNWANTED things or give them a virus, the same as your computer can get one just by updating software or firmware. Give me the OLD DAYS when you had to ORDER software for an upgrade or take your product in for FIRMWARE Upgrades! people are getting too dadburn lazy for their own good and this laziness is going to destroy us all!
