An Indian University plans to develop a humanoid robot that can walk, talk and do household chores. Bharat University in India said that this robot will be built with state-of-the-art technology which could respond and react faster to our commands. Recently, students from this university had some success at a robotics competition after which the university partnered with Roboin, a robotics training institute to setup a futuristic lab at its campus.
The proposed humanoid is said to be about 180cm tall and will be ready in two years. Roboin said that the robot will be able to measure the brain waves of a person and carry out a task based on the persons thought. Researchers told in an interview, “If the person wants to go to the toilet, the wheel-chair robot can read his thoughts by assessing the brain waves and lead the person to the toilet. Several such functions could be performed”.
Until this robot comes out, I will get back to doing my dishes!
