Herb the Butler Robot Will Eventually Do Your Bidding

While most of us agree that it will take a while before we have robots to do our chores, it looks like things are moving the right direction for all us slackers, thanks to this new butler robot, simply called HERB.

Intel recently showed off their HERB project, which stands for Home Exploring Robot. The robot butler was built using six multi-core computers along with multiple sensors so that it can perform various tasks in your kitchen for you, such as getting you that beer or making you dinner.

HERB can toss things in the trash, serve you, sort dishes, place them in the dishwasher, and a lot of other things. However, it’s going to take a while before you’ll be able to take HERB home to do your dirty work. There are still plenty of bugs to iron out before this can happen. Once this is done though, we can all look forward to having our very own robot manservants. Of course, if you have the kind of money that HERB will likely cost, you could just hire your own staff of human servants.
