When we think of robots, usually our first thought is C-3PO and R2D2 and the hopes of one day in the near future having a golden intelligent being roaming around the house. Unfortunately, science is not quite there yet and many robot creators and scientists are skeptical of future household robots even looking like what we imagine today. However, although we are not seeing the live version of Star Wars yet, scientists are certainly on the right path.
In an article in the Scientific American in 2006, Bill Gates compares the early development stages of computer technology to that of robotics. Right now companies, such as Microsoft, are digging into robot technology, using their resources and encouraging new development and applications. So it’s not a stretch to imagine household robots becoming increasingly integrated into our lives and homes over the next decade.
