Dawn of Bots: Androids with Lifelike Movements


Human brain knows no limits; it’s one of the quest includes building machines, emulating our own appearance, movement and intelligence. We personify such creations as bots. No doubts Greeks pioneered the spirit of robotics in ancient times but the sails were set during European Renaissance. For example, a mandolin-playing lady (1540) was constructed by Italian inventor Gianello Torriano and  L´crivain, The Writer (1772) was build up by Swiss watchmaker Pierre Jacquet-Droz.

Since then there is no looking back, scientists and philosophers went till the extent of speculating human brain as an elaborate automaton. And this has further led to a completely new field in science called, the artificial intelligence.

Moving on the same lines, I have come up with a list of bots that I feel are ahead of the contemporary times in the field robotics. These bots are specifically designed to make our life simple and study the laws of physics employed in daily lives.

ImageIn order to grow the world wide web, the society of internet paraphernalia is coming out with IPv6.

Getting available round the clock tethers the overall output. Majority believes that using smartphones enhances efficiency but as a matter of fact, it’s the other way round. People who prefer to have a constant touch with clients and/or team overlooks the space that they otherwise must give to their own personal lives.

Acquiring the habit of checking emails regularly at the cost of one’s personal space doesn’t help at all. On the contrary, the person wont be able to give quality time to family. Ain’t that a priority too in life?

Technology that has propelled us to work round the clock. Emerging competition from nearly all professional fields have prompted us to framed a system where we are providing 24×7 support to our customers and teams. Till some extent, we are counting the same as our USP. But is it truly helping in channelizing the efforts for growing?
