Fifteen years ago, if someone had started speaking about a robot, many people would probably have had in my mind a resemblance of C-3PO. A shiny human-shaped being that could act on his own carrying out similar tasks to a human.
While humanoid beings are being produced, there is a simple reason that they aren’t at the centre of our day-to-day lives yet. They can be much more useful if they're NOT designed to look like us! For the time being, we are better at being human and robots are better suited to carrying out specific tasks.
