I must admit something, as a child growing up in the 60's, I truly believed that my future would be like the Jetsons, and that I would have a Rosie the Robot. I also thought we would be flying instead of driving by now. It's 2009 people, get with it!
It appears the Japanese will be the ones to get this accomplished and, most likely, at a price tag that we" mere mortals" can afford. Honda has the Asimo robot, which seems too child like, so that probably wouldn't work for me as I would feel obligated to give him an allowance. I didn't see an add to cart button, so that tells me I cannot afford him. But how do I save for something if I don't know how much its gonna cost me? Sheesh.Toyota has come out with one just last fall (pictured at right). This guy looks great and he sweeps! Sweet!
C3PO would also be a great choice, he can climb stairs to my laundry room, and make me laugh. Love his dry sense of humor. Except he'd probably give me attitude about doing the laundry. I'm following him on Twitter now. Don't ask.
I cannot have a robot like this Archie
The robot from I, Robot, Sonny, at first seemed pretty cool. I later decided, too sneaky.
And The Terminator, well, what can I say, too mean.
Instead of those silly jars that say "Plastic Surgery Fund"
If you've been reading this blog for any length of time, you should know by now that I am hopelessly optimistic and therefore, will expect a cool robot one day. I mentioned this to my husband, and he's like, "sell more jewelry". Jeez, that's his answer for all my needs. Ok, don't go there.
