At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the talk of the town was robots. Robots who can do everything from make your morning coffee to sort and fold your laundry. Some of the robots on display also look just like humans. In fact, that’s what the industry is aiming for–robots that take care of your chores AND care about you. (Yes, you read that right.) So what does this mean? I guess if you already use Amazon’s Alexa you can guess where I’m going with this. Some people want and need someone to talk to, or most specifically, someone to listen to them. In the future, we will have a relationship with a robot. (Some people probably already feel like they do . . . with their spouse.)
Just something to ponder.
