No doubt robots are important because they make the lives of human simple , easy and stress free but robots without humans are also nothing that is if something goes wrong in the robot than it is the human only who repairs it and fix it down . so we can conclude that robots cant take the place of humans.

Cabe, you are right no doubt robots cant replace humans but they can work more hard than them we can say that humans are smart workers and robots are hard workers they continue to work and work and work without getting tired and bored .

Re: Image 5 - Cheetah Robot speed is a typo

I believe that second speed was a typo and should have read 12.65 meter/second.

Good point, SherpaDog. It probably won't happen for awhile, but you never know--someday it could! I personally am still impressed by robots like BigDog and LS3. Just their sheer mass and the fact that they can move autonomously (well, LS3 can) is impressive to me.

Haha, good point, Cabe. Humans do have other strengths over robots as well!

Robots never need a break, love to perform monotonous tasks and will gladly work on weekends. That right there pretty much blows me out of the water.

But.... we can stay out in the rain!

Sorry, yes, i realize the error now! It is meters, not miles for Cheetah. Sorry about the mistake! Yes, indeed, that speed is too incredible to be believed!

Yes, a bit scary to think about something like that coming at you with full speed, isn't it? :)

I agree with you, Debera, that is also one of the most useful applications of robots, in my opinion. Nextto automation I think search and rescue, disaster recovery efforts and similar tasks is one of the most promising areas of robotics.

Some of our culture's most enduring robots appeared in the 80s. The Aliens series produced another evil android, and we saw light robot fare in the form of Short Circuit. Two of the great robots of all time also showed up: The Terminator and RoboCop.
A soundproofing invention called Acoustiblok recently won a television challenge to silence an air horn with only a fraction of an inch of polymer material.
Robots came into their own in the 1970s. Gone were the low-budget black-and-white B movies. Now robots roamed in full-color feature films with A-list actors.
Major global metropolitan areas are implementing a vast number of technology, energy, transportation, and Internet projects to make the metropolis a friendlier, greener, safer, and more sustainable place to be.
Here’s a look at robots depicted in movies and on TV during the 1950s and 1960s. We tried to collect the classics here, omitting the scores of forgettable B movies such as Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine. Stay tuned for slideshows of robot stars from later decades.
