In Japan, home robots aren’t in every home, but there’s plenty of them in development. The one big difference between them and this ‘bot, designated THKR-4, is that this one was designed with just off-the-shelf parts.This THKR-4 robot is able to serve at the party better than R2-D2 when he has forced to serve on Jabba the Hutt’s Sail Barge.
The THKR-4 is also able to walk to the refrigerator, grab some champagne, and pour it. It can even do those party poppers. For an encore, it does a massage. This THKR-4 has the potential to be the life of the party, but since it moves around rather jerkily, it is like a zombie. So for now, it is the death of the party.
Check out the video below to see THKR-4 in action.
