The Future Is Here! Amazing Robots Already Doing Human Jobs/Actions, Replacing Humans!
So you think that in the not so new future robots will take over human jobs, doing actions that, at the time being, only humans do? Well think again! Cause robots are replacing humans faster than we think. In the near future, we’ll have robots teaching our kids, or taking the dog out for a walk, and pretty soon, some really important human jobs, will be simple robot tasks. Pretty amazing isn’t it? Some even claim that robots will even be able to think and make decisions instead of humans… now that’s already too spooky! Let’s see some really amazing robots which have already been invented, and who could very well replace humans in different fields of action.
Ok, so let’s have a look at some really amazing robotic creations which can now do human actions, some may look human, others might just be a simple robotic arm, but the bottom line is… they’re getting smarter and smarter with each model invented.
Humans create robots to help the work faster and more effectively, but has anyone stopped to give it a second thought? If robots slowly occupy their place in the working field, what will become of the workers who are replaced by robots? It all comes down to a choice… robots or humans? Which would you chose.
Here’s what they can do, you tell us if robots are ready to “take over the world”
1. Robot Teacher: Saya
We’re all aware of the fact that the Japanese are more advanced than us, but e never quite realize how big the gap is until we realize that they have a robot teaching class instead of a real live person… Saya was designed and created by Tokyo University of Science professor Hiroshi Kobayashi, and not only does she have a human-like appearance, but she also talks and is able to express surprise, fear, disgust, anger, happiness, sadness due to tiny motors which put her rubber skin into motion.
Due to her facial expressions, Saya can facilitate communication, but at the moment, all this life-like robot can do is shout “Be quiet!” and other “orders” or just call out the kids’ names. So, maybe a robot isn’t teaching Japanese kids yet… but Saya’s learning fast, so enjoy your human science teacher while you can, pretty soon, you might be having a robot checking to see if you did your homework, and they never fall for the “dog ate my homework” excuse.
2. Robotic Arm Whiskey Dispenser
Have a look at this pretty simple yet ingenious whiskey dispenser… isn’t it like uber-cool?
3. Wearable Robotics Suit: Raytheon XOS 2
No, this is not the Iron Man suit, but right now, it’s the closest thing we have. The wearable robotics suit has been created to enhance performances of soldiers in combat. The XOS 2 does the lifting for whoever is wearing it, making push-ups way easier. With this amazing piece of technology, just one person wearing such an exoskeleton suit can do the work of two to three soldiers. Just imagine all of the lives it could spare.
The suit is built from a combination of structures, sensors, actuators and controllers, and it is powered by high pressure hydraulics.
If you wanna see this robotic suit in action, have a look below:
4. Robots who play instruments:
This amazing robot was created by a team from Toyota, it has 17 joints in its hands and arms and its human-like dexterity made it wow the audience after it played a flawless rendition of Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance. Have a listen below:
Also, Toyota invented some aids for this robot thus creating a Robot Quartet Band:
5. Maid Robot
It seems like the Japanese have a thing for humanoid robots cause they keep coming up with more and more interesting models. This robot was designed to be the perfect house maid; it can do laundry, serve your food, do the dishes and even prepare you a microwave oven dinner and after that, sweep the house clean! Neat isn’t she? Well don’t get your hopes up just yet, the team of experts who designed and built this extraordinary creature say that it we won’t see the robot maid in mass production for another 15 years. Till then, we can just look at the video below and hope 15 years pass faster.
6. EMA: the kissing robot
Have you been feeling lonely lately, missing that special someone in your life? What would you say to kissing a robot? Weird? Well it’s possible; meet EMA Short for Eternal, Maiden, Actualization. She is the first humanoid robot, and she was designed by Sega. Sadly, she’s just 38 cm tall, but size doesn’t matter when it comes to kissing, does it?
This cutie-pie can also hand out business cards, but does that even matter compared to the fact that she has a “love mode” in which she gives kisses to near-by heads, using infrared sensors and battery power.
7. The Three Tenors
These are probably the creepiest robots yet! These three mechanically controlled robotic heads proved that they have learned how to sing. Have a look at the video below to see if they nailed the concert. Can you believe someone actually invested $75.000 in making these spooky robotic hea
8. Geminoid Robots:
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have an identical twin? Well, now you can have one, a robot identical twin which will allow you to be in two places at the same time. The Geminoids can be remote controlled from anywhere, basically allowing its owner to be in more than one place at once. The lifelike robots were created by professors Hiroshi Ishiguro and Henrik Scharfe to be their look-alikes. Pretty neat huh?
9. The unicycle-riding robot: Murataseiko-chan
Murata Electronics developed a robot called the “Murata-seiko-chan” which is perfectly capable to ride a unicycle… not many humans can do that, so watch out for this one, she might run off with the circus someday.
10. SimMan 3G
Meet SimMan 3G… a robot which helps med students learn medicine, that’s quite an eccentric way to learn human medicine on a robot… but hey, as long as it helps cure lives, it’s ok in our book. The SimMan 3G is a robot that can cry, bleed, convulse, go into cardiac arrest and do any number of other things that humans do when their bodies are not working propperly.
