Robot Can Use the Microwave, Begun These Hot Pockets Wars Have

Robots can do all kinds of crazy things. They can save our lives in disaster situations, they can clean our homes, they can kill in wartime and now they can use microwaves. No, not as sensors or weapons. They can use the microwave to cook a meal. That they can’t eat. Yet.

This robot’s name is HERB, the Home Exploring Robot Butler. He comes from Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Institute. As part of his training to become a better home exploring robot butler, he has learned to use a microwave. Well, he can at least microwave frozen food.

With robots being able to microwave frozen foods, lazy people like me have absolutely nothing left to do for ourselves – other than to buy robots.
