What started out as science fiction has now become a reality in many cases. Robots are just one of the innovative advances in technology that have become a real-life occurrence that will affect the way we live our lives. There are those who hold a dystopian view of technology and robots, but in these cases, the robots were created to do nothing but good and make human life a whole lot more enjoyable and eventually assist us in living longer more fruitful lives. These robots are set to make a serious difference in the way we conduct our everyday lives. These robots are already changing things up in the industrial field, which many of us are not aware of as we are not normally privy to such details. The future of robotics is bright and there are men and women across the globe who are working on making the advancements that we are lacking as humans in the very machines they are creating. Allow us to introduce you to the future – these robots are set to change our lives.

Sophia

Sophia is a social piece of artificial intelligence that can process language as it is said to her. The United Nations classified her as an Innovation Champion due to her ability to communicate. The country of Saudi Arabia granted the intelligent machine citizenship as it was human enough to them that they did not see a reason why.

There are those out there who have debated whether shutting her down would be considered murder or not.

Method-2

Method-2 cost an astounding $100 million to build and resides in South Korea where it is in a test facility. This robot, which very much looks like one, is controlled by whoever sits at his heart. You can have him wave his hands, walk in a certain direction, and handle any ground he walks on.

Method-2

The reason for his development is classified but considering his capabilities, this impressive piece of technology is set to help us humans in areas where we are weak and need a stronger build to handle our environment. Method-2 also has the ability to be weaponized should it need to be.

BionicAnts

Real live ants are some of the most hard-working animals on this earth, so it makes sense that their robotic counterparts will be just as incredible at not only working together but the feats they can achieve as a unit. BionicAnts are larger than regular ants with a robotic body that does not need a remote control to function.

These ants react to the stimuli around them, as well as communicate with the other ants around them without any noise whatsoever. They can finish intricate tasks together efficiently and can handle the tasks that are put in front of them. Talk about an ant infestation that we won’t hate!

BigDog

BigDog has a simple name but can handle much more than simple tasks. BigDog is about the size of a donkey, so larger than a regular canine, and can hold approximately 100 pounds of weight on its body. This robot was construction by Boston Dynamics, a company that was created and currently functions under Google.

The machine can also cross grounds that would otherwise be too difficult for humans to properly pass. BigDog can handle ground that cars or other wheeled vehicles would not be able to, making this pup one serious companion in the field, whether recreationally or military.
