A new robot with an R2D2 like head has been designed to clean your kitchen. The robot can presently do about 50% of your kitchen chores, but the Readybot group hopes to eventually make that 80%.
In the video, the robot dumps food off of a plate and wipes the counter clean. Hopefully this prototype will soon make it into kitchen everywhere.
I wonder how this robot and The Real Iron Chef would react in the same kitchen.
