Mr. Peters... look at this! It doesn't look human-ish but it DOES pick fruit! :) Or type in "Strawberry Picking Robot" on youtube... Idk if they have only made robots for strawberries (their easy to pick) but there are a lot of other videos on it... I just looked at this one.

There is a machine that the grape growers use for picking grapes. This machine it is o.k only for the grape that it is used for wine, but for picking the grapes that we eat the farmers still need people, because people are more careful with it. It is nice to know that the people haven't been replaced totaly for the machines, but it is scare to think that this day will come some day. I hope the people who is building this robots are also thinking where they are going to put to work the people who is going to be replaced by the machines.

These robots are cool and freaky at the same time. It reminds me of "I Robot" and the "Terminator". It is a sad thing to think people will be jobless do to the Robots. Its kinda a shame.

nice video in class today. It's funny that they think that this robot will pick fruit. Ya it will probably damage all the fruit.

Whatever, robots can't replace humans! Did we learn nothing from the movie iRobot? But I must say this is pretty impresive, but it also seems a little bit fake as well.
