BEIJING–(BUSINESS WIRE)–An adorable, small robot that can answer those innumerable ‘why”
questions from young children is unveiled at CES by global technology
intelligence platform ROOBO.

PuddingBeanQ, scientifically proven to enhance cognitive development,
answers questions and interacts with children aged eight and under,
recognises and responds to their vocabulary through the use of advanced
AI.

It tells stories and poems from an expanding range of online educational
resources and teaches children about melody, rhythm, tone, intensity and
pitch when it comes to music and singing.

When launched in March 2017, PuddingBeanQ will understand up to 50
languages and is expected to provide bilingual, English and Chinese,
communication thanks to the company’s partnership with Nuance, which

interface and encourage human interaction.

will react to human touch, plus instigates interactive games that
encourage movement.

gestures, while everyday chitchat encourages good personal hygiene and
study habits.

The robot is the latest version of Pudding, the number #1 seller of
robotic companions in China based on sales and user feedback. Sales are
calculated via the country’s two biggest e-Commerce platforms TMall and
JD.com.
