Receptionists Beware!

TOKYO - Toyota Motor Corp. said Tuesday it had made no decision yet on whether it would commercialize the humanoid robots it is developing. ''We're still just at a trial stage, having just set up a separate division to develop humanoid robots,'' a spokesman said. His comments follow a report in the Asahi newspaper that Japan's top automaker aimed to start selling robots that can help look after elderly people or serve tea to guests by 2010. Seiichi Sudo, a managing officer overseeing Toyota's robot division, has said he hoped to put the droid to use as a receptionist at some of the automaker's own facilities by 2010.
