Watch: A sleepover in a robot house

Ricky takes a tour of a house run by robots

Could this be house of the future?

The University of Hertfordshire has taken a normal house, and filled it with two robots and a load of state of the art technology - with the hope of testing how it can transform the way we live.

It's hoped that in the future, robots in the home might be able to care for those who need it, like the elderly or those with a disability.

As part of his robots series, Ricky has been to visit the futuristic house.

Ricky spent a night in the house

He even spent the night there - watch the video above to see how he got on.
