At DARPA Robotics Challenge while robots could solve a numbver of things, they were still slow and clumsy compared to humans, and required some amount of remote control, when they had to face with complex tasks. Of course, it isnt good to send humans into radiation and hazards like that, but what are your opinions, robots present capabilities only the beginning, or that is what we could achieve with decades of continous development? As far as i know processors arent that far from their physical limit, and a robot has limited space for a brain, especially, if it has to be shielded from radiation, EMP and similar hazards. About lasers, they are still week compared to kinetics, they are happy to take out the most fragile targets. (I found the coilgun and EMP tests more impressive.) What do you think, can we achieve a new breakthrough on this field, what can be the limits of their development?
