A great idea for building affordable housing and for sheltering the homeless or those displaced by natural disasters.  On the other side of optimism, what happens to the bricklayers and masons that will be displaced by this machine?  The effect on organized labor could be significant.  Aloha, Russ.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, April 4, 7:09 PM

I greeted this outstanding video from http://www.technology-in-business.net with a mixture of awe and concern.  Awe because of the intellect and technology needed to create these Bionic "men"and the robotic band.  And concern because we may have invented our replacements on planet Earth.  Once these miraculous machines become sentient through Artificial  Intelligence (AI), all bets are off.  Then, who becomes the slave and the master?  This concern runs through the novels of Isaac Asimov ("I Robot") to the pulp fiction movie classics under the "Terminator" logo.  Perhaps I'm being a little over cautious, but I don't fully trust emotionless machines made in our image.  Be careful for what you wish for; you may get it.  Aloha, Russ.

Steve Foster's curator insight, January 19, 2:42 PM

This is the way of the future, right here. Robots doing medial tasks to help out people who can't do them for themselves. This is probably the coolest thing for patients, getting their food delivered by a robot (even if it looks like a giant refrigerator). This is probably the golden age before skynet is launched. :P

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, April 17, 10:13 PM

Utterly fascinating and somewhat frightening video of the latest trends in "Humanoid, Robotic & Cyborg Technology."  The medical implications of this develpment are impressive, as engineers build "a language of touch" understandable by both humans and their machines.  The dark side is always beneath the surface.  What happens when our machine servants become sentient and capable of self-replication?  Will humans be seen as flawed designs and bypassed by our machines as they create a new world without the need of humans to run and manage it?  Perhaps I've seen too many "Terminator" movies and dwelled too long in the science fiction fantasies of "I, Robot" by the late Isaac Asimov.  I have a very uneasy feeling about the direction this creation will take.  Aloha, Russ.

With the rapid evolution of 3D printing, we are now finding ourselves in a era of affordable, advanced technology. This 3D printed Bionic hand is available for a fraction of the price, and comes as a welcomed solution to those who may not be able to afford prosthetic limbs at this point of time.

More robotic advancements. This robot (named Botler) uses its cameras and sensors to make its way around the Aloft Silicon Valley Hotel's corridors. It can sense when doors are opened and delivers room service to customers. 

It is possible for robots to be the future of hospitality industries, from hotels to hospitals. More advanced robots mean easier workloads and less risk to humans in dangerous situations. Eg: delivering things in and out of mines or looking after a quarantined patient at a hospital- a robot such as this could be sent in rather than a human.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, January 11, 12:41 AM

Be careful what you wish for.  I don't like this development.  Advances made in AI (artificial intelligence) could make humans obsolete.  This theme has been covered by novels such as "I Robot" (Isaac Asimov) and movies following the "Terminator" and "Blade Runner" themes. A new definition of what it means to be human may soon be forthcoming.  I'll leave you with a paraphrased question from Asimov's "I Robot":  Do Robots dream electronic dreams? We are looking at our replacements.  I don't like what I see.  Aloha, Russ.

Gary Yuen's curator insight, March 20, 4:49 AM

Japan is always technologically advanced; and now robots look like a human, talk like one, even sing and cry like one. Of course it doesn't look as human as it could, but give it a decade or so - and you won't be able to tell between the two.
