I, Robot Maid: Toyota ushers in the era of the robot servant

Japan's rapidly declining population due to low birth rates and a graying majority has the country in a panic, but Toyota plans to save the day with a new category of server robots. Unveiled last week the new robot is the result of their collaboration with Tokyo University's Information and Robot Technology Research Initiative.

The robot demonstrated the ability to clean rooms, do laundry, and clear a dining room table, all with smooth moves and no accidents. The robot can recognize obstacles and learn from mistakes, abilities sure to improve seven years from now when Toyota plans to commercially release the robot and give Japanese consumers their very own Rosie the Robot Maid.
