Following a recent post from the Guardian Technology Team it seems that a world dominated by robots is creeping ever closer.  This is a prime example of how a robot,  although designed by us,  far excels mere humans in terms of accuracy and speed.  The video is quite incredible, especially the catching of an off-centred ball.

A selection of robots from Boston’s The Big Picture earlier this year shows the tremendous array of robots available, being tested and put to use in the world at the moment.  However, I can’t help but feel that the robots we are sending out for military warfare seem a tad more visually appealing and loveable than the kinda clunky and creepy ones that seem intent on inhabiting our homes.


How long before we have a battlefield of cute robots destroying each other!
