What's For Dinner, iCat?


iCat

Phillips iCat companion robot is a platform for studying the human-appliance interface.
The iCat is programmed with OPPR, Open Platform for Personal Robotics, and a library of emotional response expressions.

The goal is to understand the complex user interface of humans for home appliances such as the air-conditioner, refrigerator, washer and dryer.
Perhaps we will see our house managed by a plastic-looking yellow cat who also sympathizes with our problems or plays chess.

How is this yellow cat going to help me use my washing machine? Using appliances isn't really the most emotional experience (for me at least.) I think that thing would be better suited as a marriage counselor.
