Happy national robotics week everyone! This week we celebrate US robotics technology, and educate the importance of robots in society, both now and in our future. We got a chance to visit the Georgia Institute of Technology robotics labs, and sit down with Dr. Henrik Christensen -- one of the leading thinkers in robotics, and one of the authors of the Roadmap for U.S. Robotics -- to talk about the future of robots in manufacturing, medicine, space exploration, and more!
Have you ever worked with a robot or built your own? If so, let us know all the details in the comments below! And if you haven't, what kind of robot WOULD you build if you were given the chance?
