Really good uses for a robot…

I think the geniuses who are building robots are missing the point. This week’s news is a robot in Japan who can serve tea. As a girl in the silly frozen north, I must say I am disappointed. Come on, robotics guys!! You’ve got the “Roomba” that can vacuum my carpet, and the Robomow that can trim my lawn; when are you going to make a robot to thaw out my driveway and sidewalk??

It’s a question of priorities, and to me, shovelling the walk is a task much better delegated to an artificial person than making tea.
