Japan looks at everyday use of robots

November 29, 2007

The new humanoid robot “Twendy-one”, developed by Japan’s Waseda University professor Shigeki Sugano (behind robot), carries a tray for meal during a demonstration at Waseda’s laboratory in Tokyo, on 27 November. The Twendy-one, equipped with 47 actuators and two CCDs on its 111kg body, is developed for nursery and household assistance work.
