Toshiba’s Wheelie Robot Carries Your Dinner On It’s Head

At last, a robot that can bring me food on it’s head, while wheeling to wherever I am. Toshiba’s Wheelie is a balancing bot that moves around on two wheels like a Segway, but with retractable runners on the front and back to keep it from falling.

It has stereo cameras on top and a laser range finder that allows it to navigate around or under obstacles. Sadly it has no arms with which to actually serve me. Still he is pretty cute and a robot bearing food is always a good thing. Video below of this little guy doing his thing.
