after browsing through our showroom of german kitchens, many customers pass a comment to the effect “what will the germans think of next for the kitchen – a robot?” well – they have just done that!!

the German Karlruhe Institute of Technology has just developed a robot for households. the ARMAR humanoid robot understands voice commands and can execute them perfectly without guidance.

using cameras and sensors the robot can move around the room, lift up items on command such as cereal boxes or it can open a dishwasher door and remove items.

the answer to all our prayers has arrived – watch the video and see for yourself!

we came across this robot originally in an article on the fantastic website http://www.engineeringnet.eu
