Dishwashing Robot Prototype Demonstrated By Panasonic – And Other Robot Videos!

First up, Panasonic’s dishwashing robot. Then, other cool robot videos!

Panasonic’s fledgling robotics department has created a dishwashing robot capable of grasping utensils and dishes with the appropriate force, and placing them into a dishwasher.

Panasonic hopes to develop their robotics line into a one billion dollar per year business by 2015, or about 1.5% of their current revenue. Also in the video, some of Panasonic’s other robots.

Other dishwashing robots:

This video shows STAIR (STanford Artificial Intelligent Robot) unloading items from a dishwasher autonomously. Using machine learning algorithms, the robot is able to understand the image, and pick up objects — even the ones that were not seen before. This video is 3-x speed.

Cool, but a little slow!

Here is one of the better ones:
The Willow Garage’s PR1 mobile robot. Here it is doing the dishes.

And another video of it grabbing a beer.

This guy even cleans up a messy living room!
