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

... of the overwhelming capabilities of our service robot in the planning?
Hm, you there from
Universität 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!
