Humanoid Meka could be the Apple computer of robot servants

A group of researchers have just unveiled one of the few, fully working and immediately available robots ready for actual use in real world human environments--and the bot just happens to have a head with a Microsoft Kinect sensor.

The Meka M1 Mobile Manipulator is a humanoid robot that with two high-functioning arms and hands and an omni-directional wheel base--kind of like a real life Rosie The Robot. For those looking to purchase the M1, the standard model will run $340,000 with custom models priced according to customization. You can see video (extra points for the Apple-esque computer hippie soundtrack) of the Meka M1 Mobile Manipulator in action in the video below.
