When will widespread domestic robics be a thing? What technologies have to improve before household robots become a thing?
The point of domestic robots aren't for having waifus, but preforming various household tasks that are either too difficult, menial or uninteresting to people
>taking care of an Alzheimer's patient
>childcare when the parents are away
>upkeep of a home while and artist is busy creating
>security from intruders
>menial chores such as cooking, cleaning are gardening
>still wanting robots
your funeral meatbag
We already have the shortcut to this, and that's Siri/Cortana.
Doesn't need it. It just need to perform whatever task you command. Unless you want to debate philosophy with it.
WTF is that? Anything artificial would be synthetic skin.
Why? I don't recall ever wishing I had a waifu that can crack some encrypted RAR I downloaded because some fucktard forgot to post the password.
The only thing really needed is
And possibly the power source to run it. And we could shortcut that by implemented corded power. It's a mobile robot. Robot, go plug yourself into the next room and iron my shirts. Then go lie in bed with built-in wireless charging for happy time.
A robot with an intelligence of its own would create his own purpose, and the chance of that purpose being to serve you is mathematically unlikely.

They'd muse themselves over petty things.
all current tec is lacking mostly in
power to weight ratio & dexterity
>he thinks cybernetic organisms don't have perfect trigger discipline at all times even with their finger on the trigger
Good part is we already real dolls to use as bodies, we just need better artificial muscle
We already have those.
Artificial muscles made using woven metal strands that contract when electricity is passed through them is old news. They just take an extremely long time to relax.
A fast robot is less important than a robot that isn't tethered to a power source.
You'd be surprised what can be done in 20-30 years.
>robot dusts my house around the clock, vacuums up ever bit of dog hair off the carpet.
>robot does the laundry, cleans the kitchen, ensures windows are always spotless
Yeah, I could get used to living like that. It'd be liking having live in maids who never slept, and you didn't have to pay them. All the benefits of slavery without any moral qualms whatsoever. Fuck yeah.
People in the future are just going to be absolutely ruined. Imagine how absolutely pathetic NEETs will be in 2015 when a solar powered robo maid does everything for them, including maintaining an indoor garden to keep them alive.
Someone is going to have to create an army of robots to attack populated areas and keep civilization on its toes or we're all going to become like the apathetics in Zardoz.
Hydrogen fuel cells are shitty. Compressing a very flammable gas to high pressures isn't something that should be ubiquitous in our appliances.
Twisted nylon fishing line contracts when a current is applied to it. Its absurdly strong too.
Why aren't we here yet, /g/?
>no ...I guess the others were pretty unmemorable though
Ray's a smart guy, but he's a kook. Most of what he has to say about transhumanism is hokum, based around his own obvious terror of mortality. Not that the concept of death isn't terrifying, but he's taken to self-delusion to deal with it.
He's a genius with synthesizers though; his company made/makes some of the best ever.
