Does "Surrogates" belong on our Best Engineering Movies list, Cabe?

I guess my 16 2/3 records aren't making a comeback any time soon...

To see where we are possibly headed, see the Bruce Willis movie "Surrogates." A possible future where no one leaves their house, but instead interacts with the world through robotic surrogates.

It seems a no-brainer that these robots could easily take teh place of humans in a dangerous environment where only observation was required. Controls could be remotely actuated. The robots would provide the "eyes" for personnel trained to correctly operate the controls. Their cost, in such instances, would be incidental

It's OK, Chuck, I go back that far, too. Those two work for me. Nothing wrong with a little history now and then.

You're right, Ann. I'm dating myself. I'm sure there are more recent examples of the "soft issues," but I can't think of any. So I guess Beta and eight-tracks will have to suffice for now.

Like, for example, Beta versus VHS? Cassettes versus eight-tracks?

Good point, Chuck. That's an operating principle that applies in a lot of cases.
