Five Robots That Will Change Your Life

A good article with great pictures:



This particular robot is designed to help firefighters.

The mention of firefighters brings up this thought. You may recall, back during 9/11, that one of the big problems was getting firefighters up to the affected floors. To climb 80 stories of steps carrying all their equipment, human firefighters took over an hour to reach the crisis.

Once autonomous robots are available, it is easy to imagine robotic firefighters that are packed into closets on every floor. When a fire is detected, these robots instantly burst from their closets to fight the blaze and rescue the people in the building. This will save a lot of lives (343 firefighters died at the World Trade Center in 2001), but it will also be the end of human firefighters as a profession. 250,000 paid firefighters in the U.S. will be out of work.
