The Robot Revolution Has Snuck Up On Us

Accepted submission by microtodd at 2015-09-02 20:46:13

A while back we discussed robot furniture []. Now a restaurant in San Francisco is trying to build and run a restaurant run entirely by robots []. Now granted, these are not robots like in Asimov's Robot Series []. Instead, these are highly specialized machines, not humanoid-style robots.

I for some can see a future populated with many, many robots, and we didn't really notice that we are surrounded with them because we were looking for Rosie the Robot [] and instead we got these inconspicuous robots that just act like automated furniture and surroundings.

What do my fellow Soylenters think? Are we on the verge of the Robot Revolution, it just doesn't look like the 50s scifi thought it would?
