Warming People Up To Robots
from the that's-how-they-get-you dept
By now, you’ve probably seen or read about Honda’s Asimo robot. We’ve mentioned it here a number of times, and it’s been talked about just about everywhere. The latest, though, is that Honda is running commercials about the robot despite the fact that it isn’t actually for sale anywhere – nor likely to be for some time. They’re just trying to get people used to the idea that robots are friendly and should be amongst us. Yes, this does sound like the beginning to the plot of a sci-fi movie where the “friendly” robots advertised by the big (possibly evil) corporation turn on us humans.
