In a world where the Headtime scalp massager not only exists but presumably even sells, is it any wonder that assistant robots
like this here fella are cropping up? While keeping the design somewhat
generic in order to be able to adapt the bot to the particular
circumstances where it is employed, the designers at Kawada Industries
are keen to promote the NEXTAGE as a step toward humans and machines
co-existing and working together in harmony. Sounds peachy, doesn’t it?
Of course, some meatsack will have to be made redundant to make way for
the machines, but humans were always going to be sacrificed for the
greater robotic good. That was the plan all along. See the video demo
after the break.
