Top 45 Robot Trends in February

From Road-Repairing Robots to Bird-Deterring Drones

— February 28, 2016 — Tech
Within the high-tech homes of the future, the February 2016 robot ideas imagine the roles that these smart assistants will play in everything from cooking and cleaning to home security and simply providing companionship to homeowners.

In addition to taking on greater roles within the home, it seems that robots of the future will also make up for some of the limitations of the human form. For instance, there are newly developed drones that are capable of lifting extremely heavy weights, while there are other lightweight models that take advantage of their aerial abilities to deter birds from flying in certain areas.

These February 2016 robot trends show that consumers will be looking for high-tech aids when it comes from everything from entertainment to saving lives.
