Robots in Our Future

Just over a year after the cancellation of Sony's Aibo and Qrio, Anybot a robotics company in California released a video their prototype robots on the internet. Actually I came across the video of their robot on Youtube while researching another robotics company. The robot approaches human level of walking with it's break through technology. When I first saw it I thought it looked a little clumsy compared to Qrio or the Honda robot, Asimo, but it's just learning how to walk, like us. This technology puts it ahead of other robots and it will be possible to negotiate any terrain. Currently its far from being a robotic toy and it looks like it will be a while before we have a commercially available product. I'm betting we see a entertianment based version first and it's on the horizon and the horizon seems to be getting closer, faster than ever before.
