Japanese society is already hedging its bets in the face of a rapidly declining population with the promise of robot workers. The latest addition to Japan's emerging service class is the updated version of the ApriAttenda, created by Toshiba.
At just one meter tall, the robot can open doors, handle trays and drinks and comes equipped with cameras in its three-fingered hands. The robot is expected to join the ranks of day care and nursing robots being designed to meet the needs of the graying populace. Shown above is the ApriAttenda being trained by one of the humans it will soon replace.
