Home of the Future
The University of Tokyo has opened an exhibition showcasing a robotic "living room of the future". The living room has sensors in the walls and floor to track and respond to users. If you sit down by the desk and the robot lamp automatically swings over to illuminate your book. A humanoid robot serves a drink and washes up afterward. The robot is a a modified version of AIST's Promet humanoid and will be able to wash lunch boxes as well. Take a look att a short video report from Japanese television NHK.
