  • Synpet created the Newton robot, which is the first and only personal robot that is readily willing and capable of helping you out in school, at your home, and even in your office. Everywhere you go, this personal robot can help you out.

    The Newton can walk, talk, discuss things, play with you, teach you things, and give you soothing music whenever and wherever you want, just like an entertaining robot. Since this robot is designed to be a personal robot, it can follow commands and is capable of sending out certain sound effects. It is also equipped with light and smoke sensors capable of warning you of any fire and smoke.

    This robot can also answer incoming calls, make a call, and even deliver messages, making it more of a companion robot, rather than a humanoid robot.
