Obi the robot helps people with disabilities eat
July 24, 2016
Desin, a robotic firm, has designed a robot Obi that will allow the people with disabilities to eat without the help of another person.
Obi has four separate bowls for food and a robotic arm with a spoon. Once the caregiver guides the arm towards the user , Obi learns the delivery location.
It can also manage the amount of food served at a time and choose the food from the four bowls. It has sensors to detect collision.
Obi has been created to help people suffering from with conditions like multiple sclerosis, ALS and Parkinson's disease.
