The McKechnie Family LIFE Home is thrilled to announce that we have received our first robot to be used in research and development tasks around the home. Stretch is a novel research robot that was developed by Hello Robot. Stretch will Interact with people using a low mass, contact-sensitive body, work in clutter with a compact footprint and a slender manipulator, remain mobile, only weighing 51 lbs, and assist in vital research and development activities around the LIFE Home.
Pictured below is the unboxing day for the Stretch robot where members of the McKechnie Family LIFE Home team as well as those working on human-robot interaction research were learning more about the functionality of Stretch and taking it through some trial activities.
