Rollin' Justin is the name of a smart kitchen robot that's designed to help out with mundane household tasks. The robot takes the shape of a humanoid that gets its name from sitting on a system of wheels that help it get around.

Using a simple gesture, Rollin' Justin is able to carry out three types of household tasks: absorbing, collecting and skimming, which covers wiping down countertops, sopping up spilled liquids with a sponge, clearing crumbs from a surface or sweeping away broken dinnerware. In addition to being of use in a home's kitchen environment, these same actions are also of use for cleaning cars.

The human form of this robot and the actions it is able to carry out make it seem familiar enough to become a staple within homes of the future.
