Rosie the Robot is REAL!!!!
Anyone who’s ever watched the Jetsons probably thought that by now, (2010) we’d have a lot of the things that the Jetsons have, such as moving sidewalks, flying cars, and the like. Well, we are starting to get some of it, such as holographic TVs, videophones, and now, a robot that can do housework!
In an article from physorg.com, details about this robot are revealed.
Mahru-Z, made by the Korea Institute of Science and Technology is capable of cooking, cleaning, and doing laundry.
Now, I don’t expect that it’s anywhere near perfect yet, nor do I think that if it ever is, it will be affordable any time soon. Probably if someone is rich enough to buy one of these robots, they could at least hire a human at a fraction of the price. Who knows, perhaps 50 or 60 years from now, we’ll have these kinds of robots as standard in every house..
So, would you feel comfortable with one of these robots in your house?
I might… but I feel if we let robots do everything for us, then we’ll forget how to do these things for ourselves.
