ElliQ companion robot for older adults reaching more people

Techstination feature for Friday, June 10, 2022

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   Intuition Robotics….a company we told you about at the end of last year….has been making a big splash with ElliQ.   The companion robot for older adults…that looks much like a lamp with a screen…is being distributed by New York state to hundreds of isolated seniors.   ElliQ gets better all of the time with updates…and CEO Dor Skuler points out…unlike smart speakers is proactive…

“Meaning the older adult doesn’t need to remember to approach her or give a command.  Rather, ElliQ will proactively initiate interactions and just start talking to them.  ElliQ creates a lot of empathy and creates discussions around their day today, how they are feeling,”

The typical cost is 250 dollars up front and a 30 dollar monthly service charge.    From what we’ve seen…ElliQ can be life changing and very worthwhile.  Find more at
