‘Robo-Waiter’ serves matza to the president

The president is shown the Robo-Waiter, developed by three junior high students from Haifa. The small humanoid robot has arms and an extension to grab items, and is equipped with sensors, cameras and software that allows it to “hear” commands.

Obama and Netanyahu are served matza by the robot before moving on. “That’s good matza,” Obama tells the trio. “That’s wonderful.”

He’s photographed with them, and then with more Israel Museum personnel as he finally moves out of the exhibit. It was notable how many of the chosen exhibits are focused on helping the disabled. Notable, too, how many questions the president asked, how long he lingered at each exhibit.

Now, though, he’s leaving the museum. Next stop Ramallah.
