robots

Automation is entering all areas of our lives. Robotic mechanisms have long since replaced people on assembly lines in factories, which is extremely cost-effective. Robots don’t need a salary, food or vacation leave, only timely maintenance. These mechanisms solve many routine tasks at a higher speed and accuracy without getting tired. Robots are increasingly entering into our everyday lives as well, allowing us to spend less time on boring housework. Of course, certain models are still too expensive. For example, the robot dog from Boston Dynamics is still out of reach for the average person. And yet robot vacuum cleaners are no longer a surprise for anyone.
