Apple is exploring the field of personal robotics, aiming to introduce new products in the future as its “next big thing,” reports Mark Gurman at Bloomberg.

Apple explores Home Robotics as the 'next big thing'

Apple engineers are developing a mobile robot that can follow users around the house, and are also working on a tabletop device that uses robotics to move its screen.

By delving into robotics, Apple could expand its presence in consumers' homes and take advantage of advances in artificial intelligence. However, the specific approach Apple might take remains unclear.

Although the robotic smart display is more advanced than the mobile bot, its inclusion in Apple's product roadmap has varied over the years.

Robotics research is conducted within Apple's hardware engineering division and AI/machine learning group, overseen by executives Matt Costello and Brian Lynch.

The project is still in its early stages, and Apple is looking for new sources of income, having recently abandoned an electric vehicle project, and its venture with mixed reality glasses (Vision Pro) is expected to take time to generate significant profits .

Apple's desktop robotics project

The idea of ​​a desktop robotics project initially intrigued Apple's top executives, with the goal of replicating a person's head movements during FaceTime calls. However, concerns about consumer demand and technical challenges have stalled progress.

Apple executives debated the feasibility of this device. Additionally, Apple is exploring AI algorithms to allow robots to navigate messy spaces inside homes.

While the concept of robots handling tasks like washing dishes is on Apple's radar, engineering challenges make it unlikely in the near future. Apple's potential home robot could rival Amazon's Astro, which offers mobile virtual assistance and home security.

In general, Apple's robotics projects are in the early research phase, and it is uncertain whether they will ever reach the market.
