Toshiba’S Wheelie Could be Your Robotic Butler

This new robot from Toshiba uses the basic balancing principles found in a Segway to keep its balance and to help around the house. It was unveiled last week in Tokyo.

Wheelie doesn’t have any arms, but it uses the inverse pendulum principle to balance itself. The flat surface of its head makes it the perfect butler or waiter, and it’s just big enough to rest some plates on top of its noggin.

Check out the video below to see Wheelie in action. It’s true that this is an area where robots could really help out. Think about all of the robot vacuum cleaners that are cleaning people’s houses.

With one of these, you could have a robot deliver your TV dinner directly to you, so you don’t have to get your lazy ass off the couch. Now that’s what I call progress!
