Where's Your Robot?

Here's a wonderful documentary show from the BBC... made in 2008. Let's ask the obvious follow up question: is your robot any closer?

It seems to me that we humans have made a good deal of progress in robotics since this  show was aired. Still, getting that cup of coffee from a robot, just the way you want it, seems a bit distant. So, which of the challenges to robot development shown in this film have we made progress with? Whether you have answers to this question or not, this show is an informative, insightful, and entertaining look at the way we viewed the future of robots, just 8 years ago in the past.

(below) Here's a more recent video that, in very small part, answers the question of "how far have we come since the BBC show?" Hundreds of other posts throughout this blog answer the question in far greater detail.

Enjoy, reflect, share your "ah ha's" :
