Robots, they had been my favorite toy since I was a kid, and still fascinated whit them up to now . Well, now in our daily living , as technology evolves, robots and robotics has been a part of it not only in toys but also in some industries like car manufacturing , some medical instruments, agriculture and military equipment. Some of us is aware of that and some are not. There are people who are interacting with robots yet not noticing it. Maybe the reason is some of us think that robots is the same as what they see in the movie or television. As mention by Alicia Jones (Supervisor, Corporate communication American Honda) in the video below, she said that some people are watching to much television, and I agree with her that we could imagine lots of possibility in a scifi movie but in reality, applying it, is a very difficult task to achieve.
Now the big question is, are we ready to accept them as part of our community? Let’s put ASIMO as an example, a bipedal robot created and developed by HONDA, who could walk like human, run and climb stairs. Almost 24 years of experiments and development, ASIMO’s technology is evolving little by little from walking, running, avoiding obstacles and now they are even developing ASIMO’s AI capabilities. This leads many other robots developing institution and companies in making robots that could help us in our daily living . I think accepting them as part of our life would motivate developers to continue in researching and perfecting this kind of technology.
Manny people think that robots will dominate us in the future. Hmmmm.. it only happen in the movie like irobot and terminator. how about you?,…. are you ready?
