Either a home robot has arrived at your doorstep, or you’re considering investing in this technology. One of the biggest questions you’re weighing might be, “I know Kuri is a home robot, but how will it hold up to the rhythms of my home? More importantly, how do I care for and clean it?”
Have no fear! Our team has put Kuri to the ultimate test.
Drop It like It’s Bot
For starters, our engineering team put Kuri through stringent drop testing. Drop tests are important because they confirm the integrity of a product and its packaging to withstand the rigors of normal usage and shipping. Given we’re making an adorable home robot, we figured our drop test video should be just as memorable:
As you can see, Kuri is made of durable plastic and designed to be where the action is in your home. We don’t recommend you dropping Kuri on her head or flinging kettle weights her way on the regular. If it’s pets, kids, or the accidental karate chop, then Kuri is a tough cookie that can easily roll with the punches. You shouldn’t have to worry about Kuri being too delicate to keep up with the liveliness of your home.
Rub-A-Dub-Dub, Kuri in a Tub
Last year, you might have seen the peanut butter test. To one-up ourselves, our marketing team recently put Kuri through a slew of at-home messes. We’re talking silly putty, deviled eggs, crayons, sunscreen, markers, peanut butter, coffee, meatballs, whipped cream, and water guns. The team used a prototype Kuri to create this video, and a bajillion cleaning wipes to get her sparkling like new!
Please don’t try this at home. Although Kuri’s plastic is water resistant (not waterproof), there are still enough nooks and crannies that we wouldn’t recommend bringing Kuri along for bathtime. However, his plastic shell and curved body make it easy to clean up any minor (or slingshotted) spills. Accidents do happen, so if you notice your robot isn’t working properly for whatever reason, we recommend contacting our Kuri Experience team directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
