If it were real I am not sure I would have to have one of those things running around my house

I want mine ! NOW!!!

Why would someone not want one? After all, it could clean the dishes, wash the car, do the laundry, go grab me a beer when I want one, find the tv remote when I can't and maybe even anwser the phone?

I can't wait.

Robotics is certainly not that advanced yet. Especially to say that it will be available July 16. There are no predecessors even close. Robots are still quite clumsy when we attempt to mimic human movement.

It is a movie promo for the film "I Robot" It was a short story by Asimov (I think).

Damn...now my dreams are vanished...

A Issaac Asimov movie? That would be cool.

Have some of his work already been done into movies before?

There are predecessors. There is a new Honda robot that walks upright and can pick things up.

Yeah, but kids do WAY more than what you want them to do, and they don't have a ON/OFF switche.

Yeah, you're right. And what about that robot that could immitate someone who was dancing? He could almost reproduce all of his/her moves. Don't remember if it was the Honda robot that did that too. It was pretty cool.

It didn't looked clumsy at all.

The moment I looked at that thing, both "The Terminator" and "The Matrix" came to mind. Don't ever let machines take over your life or that could be the end of humanity.

I seen that thing at the movie box one time. I thought the dam thing was real.
What a dissapointment.

I was just going to mention, that they would have to use some sort of AI (Artificial Intel) otherwise they would never learn...if they learn, then they "could" learn from sources around them IE The Net, TV (Imagine a highly advanced robot with learning AI that watched anythingthat dealt with rights, freedom, speach etc. Do you not believe that they could say "Hey screw this serving thing...we rebel". Or do you think that Asimovs Laws of Robotics would be applied to all AI robots?

I like machines and techonolgy and my first thought was I want one! But there has to be some drawbacks to this...

I think people are scared for nothing, if not, having watched too many movies.

We might be intelligent, but we are FAR away from creating AI. Why would you be scared of a dumb robot?

Are you scared of the computer who is sitting on your desk? Such robots like theses probably wouldn't be much more intelligent than current computers, they would just LOOK more intelligent, because they would already have more pre-programmed routines and functions, with the ability to program and add new functions, with OUR help.

Whoa Whoa back up the wagon here. I never said scared..I asked a logical question .
1st we ARE not far from AI..look it up.
2nd You COULD NOT have a robot clean your house serve you beer whatever, IF it was DUMB...it has to learn to avoid obstacles etc. My point was WHEN we get to a sufficiantly advanced AI would we employ Asimovs Laws of Robotics?
Read them, they are like the 10 Commandments for Robots
