The Mahru-Z Maid Robot Ain’t Exactly the Jetsons [Robots]

Standard

In the 1960’s, Man imagined maid robots like Rosie efficiently coasting around the house in a menopausal whir. In 2010, we get Mahru-Z—the world’s most advanced autonomous butler. And you wonder why we watch so much television.

Now, I don’t want to say that the world’s robotocists have let me down, but it shouldn’t take 10 minutes and 2 bipeds to make me a piece of toast. Get me the creative team behind Pee Wee’s Playhouse—he had a breakfast contraption that, in hindsight, may have been a better use for our R&D budget. [KoreaTimes via Robots via CrunchGear]
