Korean robot manufacturer Yujin has released pictures of its upcoming nanny robot "Jupiter." Jupiter recognizes human voices and orders, and it can carry out simple duties like rolling around your house and knocking things over. Jupiter also interacts with people via two main displays, its face and a screen on its chest. Jupiter's face uses electronic facial expressions that display emotions like happiness, confusion, and bone-crushing rage.

Jupiter also apparently has spikes extending from its side, so you know can feel safe leaving your kids alone under its care while you take another relaxing robot-free vacation.
