Submission + - The Changing Face of Robotics

An anonymous reader writes: Using sensors to interface socially, the next generation of robots may not fit the classic idea of what a robot should be. Glen Martin writes: "Equipped with two articulated arms, it can perform a multitude of tasks. It requires no application code to start up, and no expensive software to function. No specialists are required to program it; workers with minimal technical background can “teach” the robot right on the production line through a graphical user interface and arm manipulation."
