First You Start Off With A Toy Robot… Then You Build A Real Robot

from the it's-just-the-beginning dept

A NY Times article looking at how the sudden popularity of toy robots may lead to more “real” home-based robots in the future. First, developers can easily learn more about the ways in which humans interact with robots. Second, a generation of young kids growing up with robots will be much more open to having robots everywhere. So is this going to be the next generation gap issue? Will the kids of today grow up and make fun of the way I don’t understand robotics?
