SmartPal V Cleans Up

Yaskawa Electric has come up with the SmartPal V for domestic duties. Weighing about 280 lbs. and 52" tall, the robot tools around on wheels, has four CCD cameras and can move at a speed of 3.6 kpm. The bot knows its owner, can respond to questions, and can recognize items that need picking up. It will also interact with others of its ilk. While it can run for about 2 1/2 hours until it needs a charge, we think with the mess around here, we would be lucky to get an hour's work out of it.
