Meet Wakamaru

I would like to introduce everyone to Wakamaru, a domestic robot (that does household chores), made by Mitsubishi of Japan. He is currently visiting New York City and staying at Uniqlo (Japanese version of GAP) in SoHo. He can be seen walking around and greeting customers at the store. I had a delightful conversation with Wakamaru and I hope he enjoys his stay here.

So have you met anyone interesting lately?

Oooh, so what kinds of household chores does he do? Can he do dishes and fold laundry? Those are my two least favorite chores.
