Technology in the 21st Century

Society’s infatuation with robotics has lasted for several decades, and the interest in creating lifelike robots, or humanoids, has increased tremendously in the past few years. Japan, for example, has made significant strides in the field of robotics, and the United States is not too far behind.

Last year, The New York Times published an article regarding the growing presence of robots in our daily lives. I found this article particularly interesting.

“Students, Meet Your New Teacher, Mr. Robot”
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/11/science/11robots.html

According to the article, “In a handful of laboratories around the world, computer scientists are developing robots like this one: highly programmed machines that can engage people and teach them simple skills, including household tasks, vocabulary or, as in the case of the boy, playing, elementary imitation and taking turns.” Personally, I don’t know whether this idea is a good concept. Any ideas?
