Do you find yourself feeling lonely or craving companionship? Have you considered purchasing a machine that could fill that void? No, not that kind of robot. I’m talking about moving, talking, thinking robots that can do things like fetch a cup of coffee and dance with you. This has been a futuristic concept for decades, and that future is finally here. It’s also for sale.

There are a number of so-called companion robots now on the market, and several of them were on display at CES in Las Vegas. Some of these devices are small tabletop gadgets that essentially function like pumped-up Amazon Echos with more moving parts. Others, however, are standing, walking, humanoid robots straight out of an Isaac Asimov story. Companies have different things to say about the varying approaches. Some say that they don’t think people want a robot that looks like a robot. Others want users to interact with machines as if they were people, even though it might seem creepy at first.

But I want "that kind of robot."
