UK based Extend Robotics recently stated that they had a successful trial of its VR controlled cybernetic bartender, robotically optimized bartender (aka R:O:B:). The robot has a human-like dexterity and it is completely capable of virtually pulling a pint.
R:O:B is immersive and has intuitive control which uses VR. R:O:B has real human-like dexterity and reachability to six DoF (degrees of freedom). The robot is affordable and is developed in-house at Extend Robotics.
“At Extend Robotics, our vision is to extend human capability beyond physical presence. Our mission is to democratise dexterous teleoperation at scale over the next three years, designing cost-effective robotic arms capable of remote operation from anywhere in the world, using cloud-based teleoperation software.” – Dr. Chang Liu, CEO, Extend Robotics.
