Humanoid Robots Perform Household Chores

I gotta get me one of these. I always wanted a wife to do the cooking and cleaning.

Humanoid robot HRP-2Japanese researchers develop humanoid robots which can perform household chores such as serving tea and washing dishes.

In a demonstration this week, a humanoid with camera eyes made by Kawada Industries Inc. poured tea from a bottle into a cup. Then another robot on wheels delivered the cup of tea in an experimental room that has sensors embedded in the floor and sofa as well as cameras on the ceiling, to simulate life with robot technology.
