One of the most promising applications for service robots is in elderly care, being able to provide support, companionship, and medical care 24/7 without getting tired or needing breaks can greatly improve the quality of care provided to elders. Aeo is the latest entry into this field, capable of performing many routine tasks that would otherwise use valuable human nursing time.
This interview of Daniel Theobold of Vecna Technologies concerns his believe that the best use of robotics is to free up our time to allow us to live more enriching lives as humans.

Robotics is improving surgery by allowing levels of precision that could never be achieved with human skill alone. This paves the way for ever more less intrusive operations, reducing the possibility of complications, and shortening recovery time.
The new HUENIT Robot Arm is a midsized multipurpose manipulator revealed at CES this year that features end effector attachments for 3D printing, laser cutting, and manipulation, along with many others. This type of omnipurpose robotic platform is likely to become increasingly common as robotics finally enters the realm of consumer accessibility.
CES is always an exciting time packed with the reveals of many cool new products, CNET provides a quick rundown of all the interesting robots unveiled at this year’s show.
