Let's all move to korea!
This is the moment we've all been waiting for. Well, I guess we still have to wait 'till 2020. And move to Korea.
But anyway, the robots are on the way!
"The wheeled robots will offer such various applications as cleaning rooms, health-care programs, Internet connections, home monitoring or reading books while kids are sleeping.
The always-on mechanical servants, some of which have the ability to re-charge electricity automatically, can also order Chinese food and pizza by connecting to the local information network.
The robots will be operated under the mobile Internet connection. Subscribers of the fixed-line high-speed Internet services can sign up for the wireless Web offerings for 10,000 won a month after installing an access point, which will cost 10,000 won.
Chin said the price of network robots would further go down, as companies crank out robots en masse in the not-so-distant future, even below the $1,000 price tag.
``On the back of the network robots, we are jockeying to become one of global top three robot producers by 2010. In 2020, every Korean household will have a robot,’’ Chin said."
