To relax I like to read tech news or trash about the celebrities. I know sounds pretty bad huh? Well, while reading Engadget
I stumbled across this....
At the University of Tokyo they have created a humanoid robot to assist with the elderly.
"Researchers at the University of Tokyo are crafting more lifelike and more agile servant bots nevertheless. In an effort to create a tactical team of droids ready and willing to serve the aging population of Japan." (http://www.engadget.com/)
These droids will do simple tasks such as cleaning, doing the dishes and pouring tea.
I dont know but does this sound like the movie iRobot to anyone? I am afraid that one of these days, this simple invention is going to turn against us. Maybe it is just paranoia.
