    Put some bodywork on the front and put a toilet seat on it… see where I’m going? You got me…

    Zuzu, happily we do a little better with immigration policy so it will take us a bit longer to have their problems. The real winners of the Japanese investment are the Europeans.

    That’s not a robot.

    It’s an entry in “Pimp My Wheelchair”.

    I can’t find a video, but Top Gear did a shortish segment on this. Richard Hammond got to ride one of these around inside Toyota’s HQ and a bit around the roads outside their building in Toyota City. It reclines for faster travel (up to about 20mph, IIRC) and the wheels and various body segments articulate to lean into corners.

    Cool. Just need something to keep the rain off…

    Laugh at the Japanese now if you want, but they’ve been working on the problem of elder care entitlements and a contracting population (while increasing per-capita productivity through mechanization and automation) for decades ahead of the rest of the world.

    Their R&D will have solved the problems that the United States will sooner license or lease from Japan than invent themselves for the retirement of the baby boomer generation.

    Now go watch Roujin Z (1991)!
