Now robots hope to put dogs out of work too

Nothing fulfills the need for companionship like the cold hard steel of
a robot. The gentle whooshing of gears and servos floats misty lavender
doughnuts of joy into the hearts of even the most severely disabled
farmers. So we’re stoked to see that researchers at the Georgia
Institute of Technology have taken the best attributes of our canine
helpers and applied them to the EI-E helper robot. Like a service dog
trained to grab hold of a towel to manipulate doors and drawers, the
domestic robot can navigate the complexities of your home decor and
respond to laser pointed or voice-commands such as push, pull, and a
variety of hot tugging actions. Drape that thing in a plush, doughboy suit and we’ll be singing Ee i Ee i Oh! all the way home.
