Wow! Decades of fake promises that we “will have a robot in each house”, we are still playing fetch with small dummy machines… We are talking about SOLID RESULTS DELIVERED here… Hehehe… (no, no it is not a matter of fooling us to get funding. These ARE the things they get funded for! The other robots advertised are just for the new Star Wars episode…)
