Robo-chefs and fashion-bots on show in Tokyo

After watching Astro Boy's movie, this was interesting news to me, although I guess robots doing chores for us is quite old news, but the robotics technology are getting better and better. And that's always news.


Japan's latest robots don't save the world - they cook snacks, play with your kids, model clothes, and search for disaster victims. The International Robot Exhibition in Tokyo is showing off the latest whirring and buzzing inventions from at home and abroad.

  22. @foong,
    everyday think of massage ah? Wifey also can do one (and can add "extra" for free some more! LOL)

    Zaini does some of the housework. His main "duty" is doing laundry because I hate to do them. :D And because he is a neat freak, he tidies up the house while I do the vacuuming. Fair lah, right?
