Korea Testing Household Bots

Korea is once again proving that they’re ahead of the technological curve in so many ways. This time, it’s the Korean Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) that is behind a quiet revolution. They launched the pilot program of the national ‘Ubiquitous Robot Companion’ effort last week. They are taking a number of bots and placing them into 1000 homes for testing. These bots will perform some basic household functions. In addition, a few bots will be placed in airports and train stations to help tourists with information and directions. The Koreans want to have a robot in every home by 2020. Nice.
