re: NASA Funds 8 Advanced Robotics Projects
It seems natural that this would be the next step for Nasa. They have literally put a rover on Mars, and I am sure they are seeking other things of robotic nature that could also be sent up and used for tools on distant planets. They will monitor how the robotic toll reacts before they send up a living human estimated in the year 2035. This is going to produce the next wave of technology. Robotic avatars, this will certainly get a lot of people excited and means Hollywood will have to be more creative or is it technology that needs to be more creative?
