Has anyone noticed more humanoid robots in public spaces? This one was hanging out at the Mall of America in Minneapolis. It had a human keeper with it who told me that mall visitors were the beta testers for the companies tech. I asked him if the bot had hit any children accidentally yet. He smiled and said “a couple”.
I was looking at the stars with @bakerchristopher here at our Upstate New York bungalow last night and I pointed out Mars to my 2 year old. I said isn’t it wild that humans have put a robot on that planet so very far away that is taking pictures and sending them back from the Red Planets surface. He smiled back and said, “Yeah. And there’s a robot in our pool over there too.” Which is true. And it does a pretty good job of cleaning the leaves for our little bungalow colony up here.
It used to be “The Robots Are Coming”. More and more it seems to be “The Robots Are Here.”
Yours With the Bots,
