The Toyota Research Institute has presented an impressive robotic arm that hangs from the ceiling of the kitchen and is capable of doing many tasks, designed especially for homes where the elderly reside.

The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) has introduced its new robotic devices that are designed to make our lives easier within our own homes.

Toyota has just presented its vision for the future of home robotics by highlighting an impressive prototype robot that hangs from the kitchen ceiling as if it were a bat and is designed to perform the various household chores.

In principle, the robot would be focused on those homes where older people live, but it could also be perfect for any type of user who wants to have a robot to help him in the tedious tasks of the kitchen.

The United Nations predicts that the world's population over the age of 65 will double due to increased life expectancy, and for this purpose companies such as the Toyota Research Institute want to address this futuristic social problem by creating a series of assistant robots that can do those daily tasks that we overlook.

Their star robot has been this particular robotic arm hanging from the ceiling that has been thought to prevent the elderly from ending up in residences, so they could stay in their own homes while a robot does the main tasks of the kitchen.

In addition to such a robot hanging from the ceiling, other robots presented during the event was a kind of soft bubble clamp, a robotic hand that can hold even a jellyfish and that basically what it does is use a series of cushions or balloons full of air to grab objects with great softness. A robot that derives from these tweezers is a kind of robot dishwasher with plastic parts capable of holding all those sensitive objects such as plates or cutlery.

The Toyota Research Institute is using virtual reality to train its robots within a simulated home environment, so they can learn all the essential moves and then know how to behave in homes.
