Let’s assume that we live in a world where if you have enough money you could build the robot of your dreams. What would it look like? What would it do?*
I am half tempted to say ” let’s explore the possibilities” but I think that this particular topic has limitless possibilities.
Your robot could be your helper, your friend, your slave, your pet, like I said the possibilities are beyond limits.
As such I think that to give us a good idea about what type of robot we would like to get we should look as some of literature’s best, favorites, and loved robots.
For starters you could have a “helper robot” literary robots from this genera, include Wall-e from the Disney Pixar Movie Wall-e, Rosie from the Jetsons, and just because I like them so much we’ll through in Roomba from your local Wal-Mart.
Or maybe you’d prefer a friendly robot. Like the Iron Giant from The Iron Giant, or C3P0 or R2D2 from Star Wars, or maybe the lesser known Number 5 from the movies Short Circuit 1 & 2.
Perhaps you’d like a robot to keep you safe from danger. In which case you would want one of the following battle robots on your side. T-800 from The Terminator Series, or Optimus Prime from Transformers.
Maybe the idea of a simple pet robot catches your fancy. Then Godard from Jimmy Neutron; Boy Genius, A Zhuzhu pet, or I think that a Roomba could also fit this bill.
I think I’d have to go with a Bender like robot for mine. 🙂
Regardless of what monster you would choose , I think it would be a good idea to keep in mind the lessons that iRobot has taught us, and choose wisely.
