Robots are becoming more and more common in our everyday lives. From helping doctors diagnose cancer, to robot pets that can interact with humans like real animals do! This week we’ve had the chance to learn about some of these fascinating innovations at CES 2020 in Las Vegas. Here is a list of robots they talked about this week:
1. Charmin’s RollBot
Procter & Gamble and Charmin’s newest creation, the RollBot, is a robot that dispenses toilet paper when you’re in need. This innovative technology was designed to help people who find themselves stuck without any TP on hand – whether they are sitting on their throne or simply out of reach from an empty roll at home.
The world’s first robot that can deliver toilet paper to you, RollBot is a prototype for emergency situations. The bear-shaped bot rolls on wheels and uses infrared sensors to navigate towards humans in need of TP. You put the roll on top of its head before it needs it so they’re ready when your robot friend comes by!
2. Guardian XO robotic super suit
The robotic exoskeleton is the ultimate solution for workers in multiple fields. This device doesn’t require any special training or expertise, as it fits like another layer of clothing and simply amplifies arm movements so that workers can go about their day without worrying about hurting themselves from a strenuous workload.
The new generation of auxiliary suits will help your average person become more productive in everyday tasks with ease– all while remaining safe through natural movement!
BellaBot is the most aesthetically pleasing robot at this show. The meowing robotic waiter features a digital cat face display and four-layer trays, all while being equipped with multiple delivery functions, position and navigation systems, in addition to scheduling algorithms!
BellaBot’s face transforms into different expressions when it interacts with people and has a tactile feedback system.
4. Toyota T-HR3 humanoid partner robot
Featuring the NVIDIA’s T-HR3, Toyota is aiming to strengthen their position in robotics. They call it a ‘master maneuvering system’ that can move and control its body more smoothly than one could ever imagine with an advanced synchronizations system.
The T-HR3 features NVIDIA’s Jetson AGX Xavier computer, granting the human operator wearing a VR headset control of an android. Without any physical contact with the machine itself, and through augmented video data on each side of their vision along with perception data from within it as well, they are able to manipulate its every move in order for them to complete tasks more efficiently than ever before without losing focus or attention.
5. MarsCat robot
The MarsCat robot developed by Elephant Robotics may be poised to replicate interactions between humans through its ability to feel touch, hear voices, see faces, and play with toys just like our feline friends do every day here on earth!
Analogue Pocket preorders delayed until December 2021
