We are moving at a fast pace in robotics now and theres been many predictions about when will we see the types of robots like in the movie A.I or something. Well check out this robot that is being tested. It's not intelligent but it has some remarkable ability that used to be quite hard to achieve in robotics.

Watch this video! http://www.isi.imi.i.u-tokyo.ac.jp/project.../success_v2.mpg

Heres the article on it http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn7875

There was also some predictions that by 2050 a robotic team will beat a human team at football. I think it will happen by atleast 2020 or in that decade.

It would be cool to see it do something more but yeah it's already a great achievement, probably 5 or 10 years from now robots will be able to run just like we do without falling.

I want one. But if we ever made AI, we should treat it like a scentiant being, and as a different species.

I have always been interested with what technology has been doing for us, and in terms of robots they are very sophisticated. There are already some pretty crazy robots that have been built. Even Honda the car dealership has one they call the Asimo, here is a video showing it avoid obsticals on its own.

And for AI we have a new helicopter which can see and think on its own.

This link here has a really cool video of 4 small robots on a table dancing to 2 different songs, and in the second one they move really fast, its pretty cool

http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn4845

Just scroll till you see where it says Footage and click there.

Another really good video of a robot that seems to have alot of movements when it comes to standing up. Look at the bottom video, its pretty amazing.

And the new killing machine Karatee Robots.

errr ok

Maybe we could concentrate on doing important things and spending time with family and friends and work on better projects while the robots do the simple tasks for now. Also spend more time actually living rather than working?

yes.gif

I still don't think it is agile and flexible enough.. However, as the years go on robots will become better and eventually they will have adequet AI which can allow them to work efficiently (i hope).
