Persuasive Intent
"You officially live in a time where robot sidekicks are a real thing". Vector is a robot designed to live in a user's home. It is a companion robot that can interact with people and make them laugh, or connect to the internet to answer their questions. Using sensors, Vector can move around the house to move around without falling off of ledges or bumping into objects. 

Co-founder Hanns Tappeiner says, "the idea is that Vector becomes part of the family or the home, both on the emotional/character side, but also on the utility side".
