    Robots will be something everyone will have in future

    Post by shingo on Thu May 28, 2009 3:42 am

    The Roomba is typical of commercial robotics in the early 21st century: There is no white-faced Data from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" who would desperately like to learn to whistle. Don't expect chatty C-3POs, intrepid R2-D2s, or killer Terminators. Instead, robots are humble devices that do menial labor, and they're on the verge of becoming household fixtures.

    "You're not going to just have a robot in the home that does everything, but you're going to see many forms of robots, just as you don't have a single appliance in your home that washes your dishes, washes your clothes, and cooks your food," Tandy Trower, general manager of Microsoft's robotics group, told an audience at the RoboBusiness conference in Boston in April. "I think you're going to see a variety of robots that are designed for very specialty functions."

    Come to think of it, it is really worth one. It's quite affordable if you check at their site. As compared to a maid. And it works 24 hours.

    If you are rich like bill gates, you probably won't need one.

    You will have countless number of servants that will come to you with just a snap of a finger.

    Actually , robots existed , quite some time ago, but we watch too much movies and have too high an expectation of a robot.

    Some examples are those robots that will be sent to deal with explosive packages. Other's would be unmanned Air crafts that monitor the air space.

    Or even simpler ones that we don't think too much..

    Washing machine.. LOL....

    But I think it would be safer, those robots stay a little " stupid "

    I cannot imagine our world becoming like I-robot movie , where the computers actually take over the world.

    Come to think of it, we are already very fortunate compared to the past. Where we don't have to write letters and catch a pigeon and set it flying.. LOL..

    Everything is so fast. And no need to buy expensive encyclopedias

    We don't even need to set foot on the library. Our fingers do the searching.

    We can't help it . Or do you want to cycle to school everyday?

    Go to a library and search for your information to discover that the book has been borrowed..

    Or type www.google.com.

    Technology makes life so easy. We can cook something in 30 secs in a microwave .

    No mess, no hassle.

    I think dexter's mother loved to say.

    " You never guess whats for breakfast? , " Pan cakes ~ "

    Be able to make.. Is too much to ask for.
    Be able to cook from a selection of menu which can be updated online is good enough.

    Another robot ..
    Guard's the house by moving around..

    Unlike traditional Web cams, or mounted security cameras, the Rovio is mobile. It has a built-in Wi-Fi antenna and three wheels that have little wheels of their own. This design means it cannot handle stairs, but it does let it move in any direction without a lot of back and forth cornering like you'd get with a vacuum. All the while you can watch everything it's seeing in streaming VGA-quality video.

    The Rovio's control system is managed entirely in a Web browser. You control all of its movements with a cockpit of controls that lets you perform a number of tasks without any special training. In other words, you don't need to read the manual.

    If it is armed, I think it's going to be a disaster if terrorists, or robbers used it to rob banks.

    It is only meant for moving around and taping the intruder so that every thing that is done will be captured and you can call the cops while he is still at it.

    The day will arrive, maybe... Transformers.. LOL....
