7 Robots That Can Help You Around the House

As a child, I was a huge fan of the Jetsons. In my little mind, when I grew up – I wouldn’t have to worry about silly things such as cleaning the house, taking a shower, cooking food or driving to work.  I would have a Rosie to clean and attend to things around the house.

Here we are in 2013, and no such luck. There isn’t a single robot that can take care of all of our needs like Rosie did for the Jetsons, but good news – there are huge advancements in the personal robot space.

Check out how these personal robots are helping with household chores!
