CARL - A Smart Home Robot Concept

CARL  -  A Smart Home Robot Concept
CARL  -  A Smart Home Robot Concept

We believe robots will play a major role in our future, they will soon conquer people's homes. As designers, we want to shape the way they impact our lives - both from a visual and a functional perspective.

Robots should help us with things we can’t do without them. That is why CARL is not just a robot that provides a bit more comfort - instead, it helps you to protect the most valuable place: your home. It is designed to be your eyes and ears whenever you are not there.
