With this bed-shaped robot, you will never have to leave the comfort of your bed again. This invention was designed by Panasonic to transform into a wheelchair from a bed. The unique design makes it possible for elderly and disabled people to move around without the need of assistance.
Panasonic plans to bring this robotic bed to the market after 2015 as it is still a concept model. The price is also still not determined yet.
