CHICAGO -- Celebrating technology and how it can improve our lives. That was the focus of National Robotics Week at the Museum of Science and Industry, with kids and adults getting a very up-close look at how rapidly tech is changing.
All week long visitors can see robots in motion, program them and see what makes them roll, dance, even float.
Animal lovers will find Paro exceptionally soothing: a therapeutic robot designed to help the sick.
If you’re too sick to work, or just sick of work, Double the telepresence robot might one day make all of our lives a little more relaxing.
If you want to learn how these robots all work, the humanoid robot is a great place to start -- even the little ones can practice programming them, hopefully sparking a future in robotic or stem-related industries.
