Where Is My Robot?!

Pinkrobot Is it just me, or are y’all with me? Weren’t we raised with the assumption that by the year 2000 we would all have personal robots? The kind that walk around saying things like “I-am-a-robot,” in robotic voices? They would do our homework, clean our rooms, and go get us Cokes out of the fridge. Right? Well, it’s 2006 and I don’t know about you, but I sure as hell don’t have one, and I don’t know anybody who does. I don’t have homework anymore, but I sure would appreciate my room getting cleaned or my dinner fixed. The only robots I’ve heard about are in hospitals, doing precise surgery, and they don’t even look like people! They just look like machines. I mean sure, that’s great and all – I’m all for precise surgery — but can’t they at least make the robots look like people and dress them up like little surgeons? Where is the sense of fun in this world? If we can’t have fun in surgery, where can we?!!!

Technology is far, far behind my expectations, and I’m pretty disappointed, I won’t pretend otherwise.
