Description

The object is a small cute robot. It has a ball-shaped head on a cylindrical body. There are two rubber tracks on the bottom, and two swiveling casters. On the back are two metal bars which (in pictures on the internet) allow it to back up to and make contact with a rectangular power station.

According to the internet (https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/talkingtech/2018/07/25/r-p-kuri-robot-production-ends-early-home-robot-pioneer/832536002/) this product was discontinued in 2018. The IEEE robot site (https://robots.ieee.org/robots/kuri/) has pictures including a picture showing the charging station.
