NAO on the Engadget Show

The video below is a very impressive display of Alderbaran‘s NAO on the Engadget show. It’s interesting that doubts about humanoid robots are raised on this video, when NAO is such a good example. However, even in the face of such robotic advancements seen in NAO I still can’t seem to avoid a distinct uneasiness concerning robotic slavery. A little electro-mechanical woman/man who does everything that I can’t be bothered to do or don’t like doing is strangely unsettling. It clearly has no feelings or emotions regarding it’s own drudgery and yet I do and I certainly don’t have those anthropomorphic feelings regarding the dishwasher – so why so for humanoid robots?
