The balance of the display’s weight on the robot’s motor has presented engineering challenges and raised questions about the viability of such features and the price consumers would be willing to pay for them. Simultaneously, Apple has been rumored to develop its own artificial intelligence technology like ChatGPT, which could give our favorite virtual assistant, Siri, a significant boost.
