Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. You’ve got more choices when it comes to intelligent assistants for the home this holiday season. And while the main competitors are Amazon and Google….perhaps you can have the most fun with the Professor Einstein robot science teacher from Hanson Robotics. It gestures, moves its head, eyes, has a built in camera to see you…and connects to WiFi. In fact…when we asked Stephen Farrell, the director of merchandising at Hammacher Schlemmer about the coolest stuff he’s selling this holiday season…Professor Einstein…was a favorite…
“If he’s online, you can ask him a whole bunch of different questions and he will reply with his base of knowledge in a slight German accent.”
Professor Einstein sells for about two hundred dollars and is designed for middle school students and up. He’s pretty good at helping with math homework by the way. It works with an app on iOS or Android.
