WILL robots change our lives in the future? It’s a funny question to ask when they’re changing our lives already and have been doing so for years.uFrom the first time you saw a toaster (土司面包) pop up by itself, we’ve accepted that machines can be trusted to do things for us.

Technically robots are automatic tools, but they’re generally known as automatic humanoids (人型) — the kind of mobile robots that appear in a lot of movies and video games. Will it be long before you can buy one to do your work while you watch TV? Scientists are working on it.

Mark W. Tilden, a robot physicist says that there are three things robots can do right now that will change our lives in the future.

The first is work in dangerous places, the second is elderly care, and the third is telepresence (远程体验) shopping, tourism, and assistance (?助).

Imagine sitting at your computer and controlling a video game character through a store, except it’s not a game. It’s a robot shopping for you in London, while you sit comfortably in Beijing. You drive the legged humanoid robot to check out the latest fashion there. The robot, which is the same size as you, can even try on the clothes for you. Afterwards you could make it go for a walk to see what the countryside is like.

In the future, why don’t you rent a robot for an hour just to make sure that bookstore has the new novel you want? Or to take care of your grandmother? Or to help out at a disaster site?

Right now all modern technology is designed to bring the world to you; phone, radio, television, Internet. If the trends continue, robots will soon bring you to the world and at the speed of thought.

In that way, robots won’t just change our lives in the future, they’ll expand (扩张) them too.
