Would you rather?
Would you rather have robotic pet that looks and sounds exactly like a pet, or one that’s obviously a robot?
Personally, I would not like to have a pet that looks like one. It’s just weird. I have bad days sometimes and a real dog. What if I would be a person to take out the robot dog and get it wet. Electric and water really don’t mix. If I have a robotic dog that looks like a robot then I’d be fine. I’d know that it was an actual robot and I wouldn’t destroy it. It would be less creepy because you’d act as it was a toy.
Technology is often built to make something simpler or solve a problem. In this course, we will think about how we can design robot companions that solve problems. Draw a robot that does something that you think is important. Write a story about what superpowers the robot has and the people who it helps.
Once upon a time there was a little robot. Never equal to the rest because he was so small. One day he saw a little kid lost and walked up to him. The little kid explained that he was lost. The robot had a sudden urge to help him and detected where he lived. He walked the boy home and the father answered the door. The father saw the robot and thought he had potential and took him in as if he was his own.
