This is the new butler robot that Toyota has created to make our lives easier

The Toyota Research Institute has presented an impressive robotic arm that hangs from the ceiling of the kitchen, and that is capable of doing many tasks, especially thought for homes where elderly reside. The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) has presented its new robotic devices that are designed to make life easier for us within our own home. Toyota has just presented its vision of the future of home robotics, highlighting an impressive prototype robot that hangs from the ceiling of the kitchen like a bat, and that is designed to perform different tasks around the house. In principle, the robot would be focused on those homes in which older people live, but it could also be perfect for any type of user who wants to have a robot that helps them with tedious kitchen tasks. The United Nations predicts that the world population over 65 will double due to a longer life expectancy and for this, companies such as the Toyota Research Institute want to tackle this future social problem by creating a series of assistant robots that can do those daily tasks that we obviate. Its star robot has been this particular robotic arm hanging from the ceiling that has been designed to prevent the elderly from ending up in residences, so they could continue in their own homes while a robot does the main tasks of the kitchen. In addition to said robot that hangs from the ceiling, other robots presented during the event were a kind of soft bubble gripper, a robotic hand that is capable of holding even a jellyfish and that basically what it does is use a series of cushions or balloons filled with air to grip objects very gently. A robot derived from these clamps is a kind of dishwasher robot with plastic parts capable of holding all those sensitive objects such as plates or cutlery. The Toyota Research Institute is using virtual reality to train its robots within an environment of simulated domestic houses, so that they can learn all the essential movements and then know how to behave in homes.
