Robot of the future


On his quest to find a personal robot, comedian Danny Wallace meets a robot with the potential of doing the jobs we hate around the home.

STAIR cannot think, walk or see but uses senses to guide itself around rooms it has never been in before.

Horizon: Where's My Robot will be broadcast on Tuesday 16 December on BBC Two at 9pm.
