Congrats — you’ve been handed a robot whose sole job is to relieve you of one chore, job, or responsibility you particularly hate. What is it?
As technology is pervading every sphere of our lives and gadgets are becoming ubiquitous, we are becoming couch potatoes. So, I do not need another robot to control my life.
We are outsourcing every aspect of our life today. We do not want to remember birthdays – facebook gives you a timely reminder. We do not want to remember telephone numbers, events, names our as our smartphones can do that. Everything is remote controlled today. Lights, fan, air-conditioner, TV, the microwave –so if we employ a robot to ease any more of our tasks, we risk becoming more sedentary, lethargic and good-for-nothing nincompoops.
So, if there is still any task for which I would keep a robot it would be to remind me in a clear voice everyday – “Hey, wake up. Get up and run! “ or “ Do some exercise my friend” or “Stop playing with that smartphone and get some work done”!
