My first crush was on a robot: Expo Ernie in 1986. He had a sort of astronaut appeal. I don’t remember much about Expo ’86 (I was five) but I will always remember Ernie. Robots have always had a romantic appeal for us, perhaps because of our desire to create, and more specifically to create life. Creating life on its own is exciting, but creating a bond and communication with this new life is one of humanity’s greatest desires, whether we admit it or not. There is an intense romanticism about robots and machines that’s pervaded human culture and stories for many decades. Perhaps this is why we are creating and inventing new technology and robotics at startling speed. We want to see what we can do and we want robots to be an intricate part of our life, socially as well as technologically. With this in mind, I have been thinking about what this technology could lead to if it continues to develop at such speed. This isn’t a scare tactic, it’s just common sense.
Albert Einstein lives again… in animatronic form. The robotic version of Einstein is just creepy (and he plays chess). This was at the Consumer Electronics Show 2009. He can sense face expressions of people and responds accordingly.
Robots represent our subconscious effort to become better humans or create better human like machines so that we can live more lazy life while robots do our daily stuff. Robots of this age can walk, talk, move objects, replace home pets, play guitar or violin for you, cook for you, serve you in any way you want and much more… Enjoy some videos of robots involving artificial intelligence.
