DreamBots – Booth #25714 - The DreamBots’ WheeMee is a palm size robot that gently massages and caresses as it moves slowly across the body. Embodying unique sensor technology, WheeMe automatically and silently steers itself without falling off or losing its grip. www.dreambots.com Contact: Cobi Gurievsky at email@example.com 
Innovo Labs - Booth #25717 - The new PLEO rb is an autonomous robotic life form modeled on a young Camarasaurus dinosaur. PLEO rb is designed to mimic life, which means PLEO rb thinks and acts independently, just like a real animal. PLEO rb exhibits emotions, is aware of his/her surroundings, and has recognizable behaviors. PLEO rb's sophisticated sensory system enables him to hear, to see, to sense touch, and to detect objects. www.pleoworld.com  Contact Derek Dotson at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Ilshim Global Company Ltd. - Booth #25716 - Windoro is a flat, autonmous window cleaning robot that uses water, detergent and rotating pads to clean glass while navigating with obstacle sensors. Windoro consists of two parts held together by neodymium magnets, which simultaneously clean both sides of a window pane. Contact Ryu, Man Hun at email@example.com .
