Though seriously, doing dishes only takes several minutes, don`t be that lazy
As for the robot doing dishes, I don`t think we need a full on large robot for it, wouldn`t a few smaller robots do better? We already have the Roomba, I`d think a mopping alteration would make the grade. And as Trumple07 said, the task of simply putting a dish in a specific place can be done a lot faster, so why not put it in a conveyor or just automate the dishwasher itself?
I do recall people saying that about computers a while ago... Nobody thought they would go anywhere.
There will be a lot of people without a job in the future, a good plan would be to shift to a ressource based economy ( Non-monetary system ) where everything is provided by the government and made by robots and/or people who volunteered to works for free ( Keeping the working environement user friendly just in case people get bored ).
I could live in a world like that.
Yay a practical use for robot.
The future freaks me out.
Will go great with my Roomba and Scooba, next thing is a dog-walking-robot :D
