Toshiba’s ApriPoco is an 8.4-inch tall robot which can be used to control electrical appliances thanks to IR and verbal commands. ApriPoco can learn over time and no, it is not a white Pokémon. Then, there’s the robotic table that has motors and which can be moved via remote control.  It comes with a motorized chair and is designed for people who are unable to move furniture.

The IRT lab at the University of Tokyo has a new kitchen ‘bot that cleans dishes and glasses without breaking them, which is some feat. They are also working on another model that acts like a maid and cleans your rooms as well as doing the laundry.
