Let's See, What Would be a Cool Demonstration ...

... of the overwhelming capabilities of our service robot in the planning?
Hm, you there from
Universit├Ąt Karlsruhe, any clue? What about you, geek from Fraunhofer Gesellschaft? Universiteit van Amsterdam? Any other of you guys? ...What was that? But - of course! Our Cognitive Robot Companion (COGNIRON) will manouvre around a room and then and - then it will grab a bottle and pour the owner a drink! That's it people! We have found the killer application!

The consortium consisting of 9 European research institutions are presenting their Robot Companion project in a computer animation video where the above vision is realized.
I hope my health-insurance pays for it, once it's on the market!
