Adventures in Robotland: The Jobs We Want Robots to Take (Maybe)

16 July 2018

Service robots are designed to assist us with everyday tasks, typically performing jobs that are dirty, dull, and repetitive in distant, far away, or unsafe locations. Every year, new forms of service bots are engineered to rescue us from the mundane.

In episode three of Mouser Electronics' five-part series, Grant Imahara travels back to Japan to visit a hotel, which is run almost entirely by robots. At first, it may seem strange to be greeted by a robot at check in, but could this represent a more advanced and evolved future? See where the Adventures in Robotland goes next as they explore the topic of service robots inside this futuristic hotel.

I am impressed with how far we've come in such a short period of time. We should be careful of what we wish for, we just might get it! I am not trying to rain on anyone's parade, but just like Mr. Frankenstein's creator, there's always someone trying to figure out how, something good or new and innovating might be used in a bad way. Example: Credit Cards, but then again, one cannot think of something that's been invented, can or could be used only for good. Just a comment, nothing more. Thanks for reading! Dan Wright July 20th, 2018 (perhaps Frankenstein's creator, not the best example) Oh! well, I do the best I can, with what I got to work with!
