Day 119: Coming to a future near you – mini robots powered by your phone

Today’s Ted talk both excites me and worries me. Keller Rinaudo talks about the future of robotics, robotics powered by mobile phones. Is technology moving too fast? Are we actually ready to embrace a world where robotics make up the everyday landscape?

Personally, Im not too sure. Personal connections are already being eroded by the huge consumption of mobile phone usage. Will robotic technology free us up to mend those tattered relationships or will it further diminish human connection? What do you think?
