Walking Partner Robot



Another droid from the Utility Muffin Research Kitchen, er, Japan, Nomura Unison Co. Ltd has invented a robotic walker that senses stairs, crosswalks, and generally enables people who can just barely walk to get around more effectively. For those who are a bit more hale, the same team also has a ballroom dance partner robot available in shocking pink and baby blue. The walker, when available, will cost about £2000. [GT]
