100.000$ shower?

A lot of effort is being put into reducing the labor intesive tasks when it comes to taking care of the elderly and disabled – and so far robots have primarily been used in this area for vacuuming and for interaction (Paro). Now it seems though that we will kick it into a higher gear in Denmark.

One shower pod have been bought for experiments in Horsens, Denmark, and we are anxious waiting for the results. The robot is – of course – created in Japan.

While people of the newer generations might welcome this new contraption – it might prove to be too scary for the average elderly person, however a 1000 units are supposedly in use in Japan as of right now.
