44 Civil Serving Robots

Helping Out Humans One Step At a Time

— May 21, 2009 — Tech
As the future is always rapidly approaching, we as humans have found ways to do less work: ROBOTS!

Civil serving robots have become a fantastic way to get some extra help around the house, at work, or in general.

These robots provide services such as medical care, fire fighting, babysitting, and yes, even a massage.

They only continue to get better (think robot brides) and who knows what the future holds (homework robot?)!

Implications - From substitute teacher robots to personalized bridezilla bots, these tech devices are increasing in innovation and popularity. Robots are being built to further help members of society and continue to be tweaked and worked on.
