ElliQ, whose design intentionally avoids the look and feel of a traditional robot, seamlessly enables older adults to use a vast array of technologies, including video chats, online games and social media to connect with families and friends and overcome the complexity of the digital world. ElliQ is a beautiful tabletop wellness device that incorporates subtle movement and lighting cues and subtle proactive gestures to motivate the user to stay connected and remain independent through this phase of their lives. The goal is really to bring robotics and artificial intelligence into the homes of an aging population in order to keep them motivated and engaged, and ultimately fight loneliness.
