Living in a small apartment is going to be much more fun when you can rely on robots to reconfigure your setting. The Ori system is a robotic solution that allows you to change your bedroom into an office or living room at the touch of a button. You get a retractable bed and media console for the living room. Both let you control their movements easily. There is even an app that gives home owners configuration control from anywhere in the world.
Such a solution allows home owners to get more out of their existing space by moving things around at the push of a button or using an app. These robotic technologies have come out of MIT Media Lab’s CityHome project. More info is available here.
