If you imagine a world where directing a laser pointer at a bottle of water across the room would cause a robot to go and get it for you, you've got the gist of Project Clickable World.

Healthcare Robots' Project Clickable World aims to turn one's environment into a virtual mapped interface, where every object can be a button that can be 'clicked' with a green laser pointer to direct robots into action. Check out the video above to see how the project has progressed.
