Kitchen Robot Introduced in Japan

Professors at Tokyo University gave a glimpse into a future world where robots can help out around the house.

It may not be as fast as a human and its movements might be a little jerky, but the humanoid robot can pour a cup of tea and even wash up the cup afterwards.

The robot is the result of four years of hard work using cutting edge technology gathered from more than 40 Robotics and Information Technology professors at the University of Tokyo.

Japan is in a leading position in terms of robotic design but most robots are used in industrial environments.

The team of professors at Tokyo University wanted to create a robot that could be used in other environments.

They believe this kind of service robot could be used in hospitals or household where the users are not in the position to conduct the normal chore themselves.

    after robots replaced workers in factories, they replaced consumers in homes. mastering the pouring of tea and washing of cup, they went on to learn to drink the tea, and then go out to buy more at the market. programmed to spend everything and never save for retirement, they brought a boost to productivity and a permanently fluid economy. next up, how aig execs are replaced with robots, and how they will spend their bonuses.

    What happens when we develop general purpose repair robots, which are essentially disposable?

  8. Fear of …
    Fear of unemployment shouldn’t stifle technological development. It just means people will have to adapt and get jobs repairing the robots that just took over their old jobs. This will force people to evolve over time as grunt jobs are gradually all filled by robots.

  9. have washing …
    have washing machines, dryers, printers, or cars been able replace human jobs?

    there were times when all these things were done by humans. we travelled on chariots, we made copies of books ourselves.
