Robitic Form

images (1)images (2)imagesdownload (1)downloadThe question that I propose this week is one that is greatly debated in the robotic community. Must robots emulate the human body form? Some argue that robots should be able to assume any shape they need to to maximize production of tasks. Some argue that they must look like humans in order to assimilate into our culture more seamlessly. As much as this is debated and mulled over I believe that everyone is correct in the sense that the concept or robot it completely situational. Robots are meant to perform tasks and what ever shape or form best fits that task is the correct one. When interacting with humans robots should take the form of a human to create more authentic interactions. If it is faster and more productive for a robot to take the form of a vacuum cleaner in order to vacuum then so be it. All robots should take the form that bests fits their job.
