"A robot in every home by 2013"

That is the ambition of South Korea according to this very informative and interesting article appearing in today's Globe and Mail. The article is a look into the current state of robotics and the trend, of today's robot manufacturers and researchers, towards building devices that will aid an aging population. From self driving cars to companions for the elderly and robotic care givers, the possibilities are mounting and the technology is ready. It appears as though we humans are struggling more with the thought of robots caring for us than we are with actually creating the devices. Of course it seems like the lawyers are at the forefront of the debate... be careful little roomba!
