When it comes to robots, Japan is by far the leader, and they have more robots per television show then any other nation. It's safe to say, they are obsessed with their mechanical friends.

Now the Japanese have caught up with the Jetsons -- with their tea serving humanoid robot HRP-2. The Voltron-looking robot even does your dishes! Take that, Optimus Prime! The HRP-2 was part of a demonstration at the University of Tokyo, led by Professor Tomomasa Sato.

It won't be long before robots are our favorite celebrities. Watch out Tom Cruise!
