This simple robot can assist in independent living.

 

As you will have seen in the video, this simple robot can prepare a ready meal and help you eat it. You tell it what to do and it does it for you. You press a button, or talk to your phone, or perhaps use your favourite control. There may be other things it can do for you too. No need to be frightened, as it is very safe and cannot move from where it is. You may not need a robot to do that for you, but there are many people who do.

This may seem like science fiction, but the video was made in my home with no special effects, and the robot you see is a fully working prototype called Nellie. When she has been tested and further improved, then it will be easy to cheaply produce many more as they will be largely made from parts already in mass production.

I am a Remap volunteer, and Nellie has been a hobby project for several years, but now at Naidex 2017 she has come out !  Tell me what you think, and please tell me what needs to be improved.
