It's officially called a “full-size humanoid service robot” and can be piloted or move autonomously.

I love all various kinds of desserts - fruity, chocolatey, sweet, hot, cold... no matter what!
It was a beautiful, sunny day today in northern Germany - so after my dance class, we decided to visit ultimate dessert heaven!

It was just a perfect snack for a sunny spring day, and we could even sit outside in the sun with a view over the harbor.
As a 2nd option we went for a nutty version of the sundae: vanilla ice cream with caramel syrup and whipped cream, topped with chopped hazelnuts
