iRobot

We’re slowly inching towards the reality of having robots to do our every bidding.

“Hey robot, get me a beer!”

I can’t wait. But as always, the technology that is realised might not be what we had envisioned. When we think of robots we see cyborgs with human appendages – arms, legs, feet and hands.

But that might not be the most effective way for a robot to manipulate everyday objects (like fetching a beer can from the fridge).

Check out this video to see what the robot arms of the future could be like….
