Tea time with robot

A humanoid wearing an apron picks up a cup of tea after University of Tokyo Professor Tomomasa Sato drank it during a demonstration at the campus in Tokyo Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2007. In the demonstration led by Sato, a robot with camera eyes made by Japanese machinery maker Kawada Industries Inc. poured tea into the cup and another robot on wheels, shown in this photo, delivered it to Sato, then rinsed the cup after taking it back to the kitchen sink in an experimental room, which includes sensors embedded in the floor and sofa, as well as monitor cameras on the ceiling, to simulate living with robotic technology.
