This little robot can do yoga, speak Spanish and tell you when it’s going to rain.

Meet UBTECH’s Alpha 2, a humanoid robot “designed for practical household service and companionship,” according to UBTECH’s release.

Alpha 2 can help the entire family. In the video below, you’ll see a variety of tasks the robot can take on, including telling you stories and handing you tools. It can also adjust everything in your home like lights and security systems, take pictures and post online, and more.

Right now, UBTECH is crowdfunding for the little ‘bot on Indiegogo. An early bird special of $500 will get you one to be delivered by February.

Apparently, many people want an Alpha 2 — it’s already almost halfway to its $100,000 funding goal with 31 days to go.

See the video on Alpha 2 below, but be warned — after watching this, you will probably want one.
