While the world should probably be prioritizing on making their phones, oh I don’t know, not burst into a blaze (yes, I am talking to you Samsung), fixing screen protectors without any air bubbles seems to to be the key focus at least for this robot.
While you can probably find a guy at your mall’s kiosk who can do more or less the same job, using robots and apps for every little thing is how we roll in the 21st century.
So here it is; Kawasaki’s dual-arm manufacturing duAro robot that has been programmed to put on those screen protectors without getting all crooked or out of the center. According to IT Media, “duAro” was displayed at this week’s Pepper World in Tokyo, and now it seems as though even the most mundane of tasks are put under threat by the robot apocalypse.
duAro is not solely good on putting on the mobile protectors, only. This Kawasaki Robot is an innovative dual arm SCARA robot that is designed to coexist with humans in the workplace.
Usually industrial robots are developed specifically for the mass production and long life cycles, but automation is considered difficult in fields where improvisation and updating of the design are introduced at frequent intervals. Kawasaki’s duAro has an easy to program interface, and provides motions that are similar to human arms making it capable of being used for almost any type of task!
Feeling sorry for the screen protector guy at my mall, but then again he’ll probably keep his job considering how expensive these robots usually are – for now.
