In a time of obesity, do we really need to automate more things? I think this type of technology promotes people to be more lethargic. I have noticed through the years we, the population as a whole, tend to acquire things to make our lives simpler, easier, meaning less effort put out to attain the desired results. That being said we can see how this type of technology can actually promote obesity.

Robots are fine for space travel,disarming bombs and in the operating room,but anywhere else would be a cause for concern.There is now a vast amount of people that that are obese.Humanity would come to depend on the robots so who then would really be the robts.
