IT’S ALL ABOUT TECHNOLOGY

How will robots change our lives by the 23rd century?

Technology is in non-stop development. Experts predict that in the next two centuries, people won't do tiring and boring tasks themselves, but they will buy special machines. How will they be like? Will they be all safe robots? No, they probably won't. Some of them will be tiny and dangerous because they will be able to spy humans’ movements and collect information. This information will be possibly stolen by rich people. And, who knows? Perhaps scientists will want to experiment with feelings and machines!

However, robots will definitely be helpful for some of us. They will help people to shop or do the homework faster.
