Most people would agree that multifunctional robots designed for home use are probable in the semi-near future. Designer Jarrid Henderson has created a concept for a robot which might be a good indicator of the kind of mechanism that would take over this function.
Henderson's robotic platform looks a little like R2D2, and a little like a 90s-style boom box. What would it take for you to get a robot? There's already robots that vacuum, so a multifunctional robot would have a lot to live up to. Despite these soon-to-be-realized robots, we're probably a long way away from a real, functioning Rosie.
