Robot Futures are Up

Posted 26 Jul 2005 at 19:50 UTC by steve Share This

A Mirror.co.uk article offers predictions from the "futurology department" that cover all sorts of weird stuff.It seems we'll have emotional robot toys within 4 years, self-driving robot cars by 2015, robot guide dogs for the blind by 2017, basic rights for robots by 2020, and brain downloads for digital immortality by 2051. There are also plenty of non-robotic predictions for nuclear fusion, space elevators, medicinal fruit and regenerating teeth. These things are always wrong but fun to read. For more stupid predictions see our older posts on the subject.
