French tech startup Blue Frog Robotics has created BUDDY, a family-oriented household robot. The design was inspired by robots from pop culture like R2-D2 from “Star Wars” and Disney’s “WALL-E.” ¬†Chief operating officer Franck de Visme says BUDDY is especially helpful for children, the elderly, and those with special needs.
