Having Androids Instead of Real People

June 24th, 2014 by

So there was this news today of the world’s first android newscaster which was unveiled. They do indeed look pretty real as you can see here:

I was thinking how business wise I don’t think we are ready for this kind of technology. For example, imagine going into a clothing store where we are used to seeing mannequins to model clothing items. Instead, you then see this life-like person that starts to move and talk. I think that would probably scare all the customers away.

Makes you think too where if it was like a grocery aisle in one of those self-checkout lanes would you rather see an android like this greet you or simply nothing at all? I suppose it will only be a matter of time until we see things like robotic taxi drivers and all.


Share the joy
