Cody Gives Sponge Baths
A team from the Georgia Institute of Technology has built Cody, a health service robot that can assist the elderly. He uses cameras and lasers to evaluate the patient and wipes him down with flexible arms and towels for hands. The first human to receive the care was co-creator Chih-Hung (Aaron) King, who described the experience:
"In the beginning I felt a bit tense, but never scared. As the experiment progressed, my trust in the robot grew and my tension waned. Throughout the experiment, I suffered little-to-no discomfort."
