ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--From humanoid entertainment devices to robotic cleaning machines, robots promise to revolutionize the way consumers interact with the world and monitor their health and environment.

The Robotics Marketplace, presented by Robotics Trends, will feature more than 18 innovative companies showcasing the full range of intelligent, autonomous machines that are connected to the cloud, controllable by mobile device and capable of seeing, hearing, feeling and reacting to the environment in ways once thought impossible.
