Waschbär & Zapfsäule / service robots

Waschbär & Zapfsäule
Waschbär & Zapfsäule

In the near future service robots will play a decisive role in the care sector. 'Waschbär & Zapfsäule' assist the personnel with their daily duties. From now on attention is turned to care and devotion to the elderly.
Simultaneously and completely autonomous the robots attend service tasks like laundry logistics and preparation of beverages. In the course of this the two of them are neither stigmatizing nor humanised. The pleasant look-and-feel is solely generated by the cheeky contoured shape. The Segway's tilting ability lets them appear vital.
