In a glimpse of a gleaming future where mankind is served by our robot friends, a German team programmed two robots to go shopping and make breakfast. The shopper was a Willow Garage PR2, a robot that can also fetch and open bottles of beer. A TUM-Rosie robot prepared a traditional Bavarian sausage breakfast. The demonstration was put on by researchers at Cognition for Technical Systems, an incubator associated with the Technical University of Münich.
