The founder of Slant Robotics, Gabe Bentz, has recently published a book. The Everything Machine talks about what robots can and will do. And here is a hint, the title is a bit of spoiler.
The idea of creating a multi-purpose robot butler is one that has been explored quite extensively. Slant Robotics is not the first by any means. Universities have been adding to the technology for years. The difference is that none of the school robots have been affordable enough to become a viable product. That's where our Jerry robot is really special.
Enjoy these few videos of robot butlers.
