Just a reminder to myself not to think that just because robotics makers once managed to ccme up with a useful one, a trend was born:

What does it do? It dispenses tissues so that people can blow their noses. Really.

Makes this little gizmo seem like a necessesity by comparison:

What does it do? Sounds an alarm (at a pre-set time) then runs away when you hit the snooze button. Really.

Presumably, by time you catch it, you're awake. And it's in pieces, having been kicked, stomped on, thrown against the wall, etc.
