Emanuele Musini, CEO of Pillo Health, joins The Robotics Trends Show to discuss his Pillo health companion robot and some of the challenges and liabilities involved.


Pillo is an intelligent home health companion robot designed to manage your medications, answer your medical questions, re-order medications, send notifications to family members when medications are missed, and connect you directly with doctors.

Pillo will soon be launching a crowdfunding campaign to fund development of the home health companion robot.
