The demographic time bomb starting this year and for the next twenty is that the 80+ sector is growing at the fastest rate. Businesses are therefore as always ahead of the curve and developing products to meet that need. One is the development of the ceiling walking robot. Its developers at Toyota have recognised that the floor may have obstacles. Which disallows the robot from smooth functioning. It is also a risk mitigation strategy which disallows any mishaps with the people they are serving. This robot will help with household chores such as cleaning. Very handy when one is asleep. It will also help lift heavy items from one part of the room to another.
The elderly market is huge and is a growing market. It is only natural that business will attempt to develop further products that such a segment will need to help them live their lives more easily.
