Toshiba's Wheelie Robot is a Couch Potato's Dream Come True

by bradiger   March 12, 2010 at 5:37PM  |  Views: 159

If you're the kind of person who at times finds themselves frustrated by the idea of having to get up from a lounging position to, say, feed yourself, Toshiba has a new robot that's right up your alley.

The Wheelie is a Segway-ish autonomous helper robot designed to be able to negotiate a living space via its stereo cameras, laser guidance to estimate its own distance from objects, and retractable runners on the front and back to keep it from toppling should it ever suffer an abrupt power failure.

The video also shows the Wheelie on waiter duty, trucking around town with dinner on its head. That sounds great in theory, until you realize that someone has to, you know, make the food and put it on the robot's head. Could spell the end of the line for busboys, though.
