Frida Robot by ABB

I never cease to be amazed by what you can accomplish with robotics. Just take a look at this FRIDA concept by ABB.

A robotic system designed to replace a human worker, with 7 degrees of freedom arms, capable of doing whatever a human arm can do - and more.

Unlike traditional 6 DOF robotic arms, the 7th degree gives it the same "natural" ability to maneuver in constraint spaces - that exactly why evolution gave us the arms we have today.

... Now, if only these kind of systems could be bought at an affordable price, so that we could finally have some robot helpers at home taking care of the "boring" stuff... (though in same cases we're doing it already :)
