Robots are emerging as a promising future tool for humans. They provide an unprecedented logical malleability that allows them to be cast to carry out a large number of tasks. As the technology advances the line between man and machine starts to blur as more and more robots are capable of emulating human functions. This documentary from the BBC provides a detailed introduction to the current advances in robotic technology from big companies like Honda and Boston Dynamics. Later they go on to discuss the applications such robots will have in the future. Primarily, they investigate the possibility of robotic technology being a solution for the cleanup of events like the Fukushima disaster. With such promising prospects for robots this documentary provides a great method to enrich the public’s knowledge of such future implications.
