ROMI, the Roeen robot

This is ROMI, the house robot developed by ETRI in Korea that will be presented at the CES 2007. This robot seems to be able to do the cleaning (if I understood correctly), it has a voice activated command system (ROMI: sit, ROMI: yield, ROMI: give paw… ah shit, you don’t have legs… so, ROMI: roll), it can transmit videos via a Wireless/CDMA connection. You can tell ROMI to go under some girl’s skirt and send whatever it sees there to your PC or phone… Anyway, one more useless thing… When are we going to see real robots such as ATOMU or the ones from “I, Robot”??



PS: It seems that in Korea and Japan, sandals are part of the worker’s attire… It’s quite fun to see these young and less young salarymen run to the restaurant at noon with their sandals and pants hiked up above their bellies… very stylish…

    I don’t know from which country the author of this article comes from. But in my country the sandals are very common among programmers and developers, for example. Sandals are much more comfortable and healthy than any outdoor shoes.

    Well I have nothing against sandals per se, but this is more an ASIAN phenomena, where people are wearing suits (China/Japan/Korea) and wear cheap plastic sandals… I have to shoot you a Photo to express what I mean. Otherwise you may not understand.
