LG Rolling Bot
A part of the LG G5 launch is a new portfolio of accessories, gadgets and add-on's that will be called "LG Friends". Things like the VR accessories mentioned above are all LG Friends, although the platform never really took off. In fact, LG ditched the idea completely with the LG G6 in 2017.
That said, the LG Rolling Bot was one of our favorite accessories for the LG G5. It's called the LG G5 Rolling Bot and its part toy, part security camera, and loaded with features. The Rolling Bot acts like a Dropcam or home security system but can be controlled by the LG G5 similar to a Sphero or other toys available today.
The LG Rolling Bot connects to a smartphone, tablet or computer via WiFi, and has a built-in speaker to talk to people or pets, an 8 megapixel wide-angle camera for home security, and an IR blaster to control a living room TV or entertainment system. It even has an IR laser to blast on walls to interact with cats or pets while you're away. The LG Bot works with select LG Air Conditioner units. Allowing owners to check-in on their home, or turn on a TV so it appears as if someone is home while on vacation, and much more.
Finding it on sale is nearly impossible, but it was available to buy back in July of 2016.
