Who wouldn’t want a Rosie? The Jetsons had it right and that was over 40 years ago. I believe we were promised robots that would serve our every whim by now. But then again it has taken Asimo over 20 years to walk up and down a flight of stairs and he can barely do that. A group of professors from Tokyo University are one step closer to presenting servant robots to the world so we can get fatter and lazier…awesome!
The humanoid robots demonstrated the ability to serve drinks and clean dishes. The exhibition was a culmination of four years of hard work by the 40+ Robotics and Information Technology professors from the university. There is currently no word on when the robots will be available, but whatever the price I’m sure they will be worth it.
