We are living in a futuristic world beyond the imagination of the most adventurous science fiction writers. Isac Asimov, Kurt Vonnegut, and Douglas Adams all played their part in opening up a new world of possibility. Unfortunately, many of the ideas explored in the sci-fi genre are well beyond us. Travelling to neighbouring galaxies is simply not possible; the vast distances involved are too great for us to even comprehend. Consuming entire meals in pill form is not ideal; the entire dining experience would be sacrificed. Colonizing Mars is still well beyond the limits of our technology; its atmosphere is comprised primarily of carbon dioxide. The human race has taken a different path. An entire warehouse archive can now be stored inside a device no bigger than a wallet, intercontinental video calls are instant and virtually free of charge, and almost all information and forms of entertainment are available at our fingertips – all of the time. We could stop and marvel at this amazing world; however, it seems that we’ve been so caught up in our own technology that we forgot about the robots. It’s 2012 for fuck’s sake. We don’t need phones with higher resolution cameras; we need robots.
