Humans will one day render as useless walking bones, because machines will take over all the chores and whatever else that humans don’t feel like doing. We can already take a peek at the future by seeing car manufacturers going the route of driverless car. The video right after the break talks about how Toyota, Audi, and other well known car brands are working and researching on driverless cars. So far, their prototypes seem to drive themselves alright. So, I guess they got the driverless down, but how safe will their driverless vehicles be? This is why I think we might not see this type of cars at least for few years on. Nonetheless, I hope they can work out the safety issues for these driverless cars soon, because I’m itching to read, blog, eat, snore, and scratch my itchy back whenever I’m on the road outing.
A year back or two, I don’t remember the time exactly, South Korea had employed few robots to be school teacher and a prison somewhere (I forgot where) had employed robots to be prison guards. Perhaps, more of these machines will even do more stuffs for us humans soon. Imagine, army of robots/machines go to a piece of land, build bunch of more specialized machines on spot, and from the ground up these machines together build a building or house that can, in time, expand, contract, remodel, and whatever else that the owner of this futuristic house wants to do. Let just hope, more machines/robots don’t mean more bad things. Exciting about the future?
