Description
Lexy Savvides discusses and demos Misty II, the latest programmable home and office robot that can bring you coffee, patrol your home, or greet guests at the door. 

The video makes reference to other personal robots such as Sphero, Kuri, Buddy, and Pepper, as well as voice assistants such as Alexa and Siri. "But Misty wants to be more than a voice assistant. Her creators see her more like Rosie from The Jetsons, who was a real part of the family". Misty Robotics also hopes to set her apart by giving her lots of personality and facial expressions in order to evoke emotional responses. 

Misty is set to be released in December 2018.
