Roboservant will bring you your drink, follow you around the house and talk to you. Inspired by the elderly and handicapped. A neighbor of mine who is eldery and lives by his self was lonley. So my first thought was to design some software that would provide communication and entertainment for him. The software that I designed allowed for my neighbor to talk to his computer and it would talk back to him. I thn noticed that because my neighbor uses a cane he was unable to do certain things well, such as get a cup of coffee without spilling some. I then decided that I would design a bot that would one day be able to help the elderly and handicapped. RoboServant is currently able to follow you around the house based on the color shirt you are wearing. Roboservant can talk to you and understand speech and learns from what you say and is able to respond.
