Robots are being built to mine the moon.
NASA engineers are already developing a “hard-working mining robot” called RASSOR for moon and Mars exploration.
The word robot was first coined by:
Czech playwright Karel Capek first coined robot in his play Rossums Universal Robots. The word comes from a Czech phrase meaning tedious labor.
The first robotic dental drills will soon be tested on human patients.
Dentists are gearing up to begin trials with new robotic drills that are expected to automate complicated dental procedures.
A robotic suit has been developed that gives the wearer super-human strength.
A robot suit intended to help older or disabled people move and lift heavy objects was developed by Japanese scientists. HAL, or hybrid assistive limb, reads electrical impulses sent from the brain to help it operate.
Cog is a robot capable of imitating human emotion.
MIT developed Cog, an artificially intelligent robot that can emulate the basic sensory and motor dynamics– speech and movement– of the human body. While the robot is not yet capable of showing human emotion, engineers and scientists are building Lazlo, the facial component to Cog that may someday allow the robot to replicate human facial expressions.
Sony developed brain implants that can transmit sensory data like smells and taste into the human brain.
In 2006, Sony patented a technology that moved forward the development of brain implants used to replicate smells and taste. The technique could be used to make video games and movies more realistic.
What is nanotechnology?
Nanotechnology is small-scale technology and offers the possibility of creating molecular-sized machines that could be used to cure disease and repair debilitating injuries.
ASIMO is the worlds first two-legged walking robot.
While several walking robots came before Honda’s ASIMO, the upright walking machine is one of the most advanced humanoid robot on the planet. Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility, or ASIMO, operates by voice command, can shake hands, run and move from side to side, and even recognize and remember faces.
Agricultural robots are used to:
Agricultural robots help makes farmers lives easier by helping to shear sheep, prune grapevines and pick apples.
A U.S. company has developed brain implants that enable the disabled to move.
Severely paralyzed people can now take advantage of this new technology that uses brain implants and neural sensors to move prosthetic arms and hands by thought.
The da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic system used in surgical procedures.
The system can drill through bone and make surgical incisions with more precision than human hands. The robot is already on the market for about $2 million.
Oh boy! Robots are going to take over the world!
I don’t think robots are a good idea. They can misfunction and hurt the person they are “helping”.
I think that robots are going out of control because more people are building more robots each day.
Yes they can even might help find life on other planets that might take the robots shape that its familar with and don`t get frighten.
i dont think robouts should take over the world becuze peploe would get lazzy
we need robots in the army and police and we be very protected and our life could be better
i think i dont want robots too take oer the world cuz then thair would be no more human life one earth and pepole would get lazzy and that is already happaning
they will kill us all
I think you are right Kevin! Robotic soldiers and police officers would help people be safer because we wont risk a human’s life to stop someone/thing that is dangerous. BUT…that would also mean that people could lose their jobs in the army or on the police force to make room for the robots.
I got a 63.64% on my test maybe I should be a robot builder. 6th grader from Goldenrod
And I got 100% on my test lol

Stuff is getting cool nowa days and I’m only 10 years old im loven life these day
I think the robots seem a little creepy and will most likely not be able to do a lot until way in the futer but I also think that the one they were testing actually will be able to help just in a few places in the house.
I got a 100 percent
guys i have a robot its name is mip…search it up and check it out…but anyways i got 81.82% i was bad…hahahaha
MiP: your new robotic friend! I’ve wanted a MiP robot ever since I first saw the commercial for one! But I think I would rather have Cozmo more! Here is a link for a commercial for Cozmo if you never heard of him
I do not know about the robots. I watched the movie I,Robot and I believe if we use robots now, in 2035 like the movie, we will be living with robots walking around saying ” Do you help sir or mam”. And when Will Smith was driving he was attacked in the car and the robots were saying ”You are experiencing a car accident”. I don’t want that situation to happen.
i think that this should be a real thing in stock/in stores
