His name is HERB (Home Exploring Robot Butler) and he’s a robotic butler designed to open doors, clean tables, and even retrieve slippers. He doesn't look as human as his Japanese counterparts, but HERB has a bigger brain according to its developer Siddhartha Srinivasa at Intel Labs located on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University. With funding from the National Science Foundation, HERB is being programmed to think and function on its own and to navigate unknown environments.
