Could you use a little extra help cleaning around your house. Well one Japanese university has an invention that may be right up your alley. Lets check out what it is.

Behind these brick walls of Japan’s top university, scientists are studying the future of household chores. And their solution to mopping, laundry and cleaning up the kitchen.

Well it lies in the hands of a robot known as AR, or “Assistant Robot.” AR has a host of high-tech functions which are possible because the robot can “see” three dimensional objects.

[Isao Shimoyama, Tokyo University]:
“This is the first launch of a robot that will be able to help with household chores in an era of an aging population. We can show people we can do it.”

This mechanical maid is capable of more than just serving breakfast in bed. And at 130 kilograms it’s no lightweight when it comes to polishing floors.

But don’t get excited just yet. The research center says it’ll be another decade or two before the 1.5 meter robot can be mass-produced.

Japan’s robot supermodel hits the runway

Japan’s robot supermodel hits the runway

[media id=5 width=500 height=400]

Japan’s Fashion Week hired a futuristic-looking model for its first runway show. Japans latest female humanoid robot kicked-off Tokyos Fashion Week.  Topmodel “HRP-4C” hit the runway powered on battery motors.

[Shuji Kajita, Director, Humanoid Robot Engineering]:

“We believe this is Japan’s and, perhaps, the world’s first humanoid robot to walk on two feet and resemble the average body type of a young Japanese woman.”

And she passed her casting test with her 43 kg weight and her 1 meter 58 centimeter build. And though she may resemble a Japanese animation character, her agent says she needs to work more on her expressions if she really wants to become a supermodel.

[Shuji Kajita, Director, Humanoid Robot Engineering]:

“Our robot can’t move elegantly like the real models that are here today. It’ll take another 20 to 30 years of research to make that happen!”

But she must be doing fine since she has earned herself a $2 million contract with the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology.

Hulkenberg replaces Sutil at Force India

Nico Hulkenberg is determined to make the most of his second chance in Formula One after being given one of Force India’s two race seats for 2012.

The 25-year-old will replace fellow German driver Adrian Sutil, who departs after six years at the UK-based team.

Hulkenberg was Force India’s reserve driver this year behind Sutil and Scottish rookie Paul di Resta, who will retain his seat after finishing 13th overall with 27 points in his debut season.

“It wasn’t easy to watch from the sidelines this season, but I did my best to help the team and show what I was capable of,” said Hulkenberg, who was released by Williams in 2010 despite earning his maiden pole position in his rookie season.
I’m extremely motivated for 2012 and would like to thank everyone for believing in me and giving me this chance. I’m keen to get down to work over the winter to develop our new car and help the team build on this year’s achievements. The first test in Jerez can’t come soon enough.”

The 28-year-old Sutil’s future is uncertain despite finishing ninth overall with 42 points. The only teams with seats available are Williams and HRT.

“Our new line-up means we say ‘goodbye’ to Adrian Sutil, who has been with the team since we entered the sport,” said Force India boss Vijay Mallya.

“He has been an integral part of our success over the past four seasons and we wish him well for the future.”

Di Resta hopes to build on his promising first season.

“I’m really excited about 2012 and there is a real sense of belief that we can continue to push the top teams and take another step forward,” the 25-year-old said.

“I’d also like to thank the team for all their hard work this year and for all the support they’ve given me. I’ll take some time out over the next few weeks to recharge my batteries and hopefully come back even stronger in 2012.”
