Facebook Robots Could Become a Household Norm
Facebook just filed a patent for a self balancing robot last week. The current use of the robot is speculative with endless possibilites. The robot could follow you around your home while video calling, automatically take pictures for social media, carry around objects in the house, or televise local or pro events. The current market for robots of this sort is extremely expensive, with most robots costing a couple thousand. If Facebook is able to drive down the costs and complete their vision of household robots, could this revolutionize the robot industry? Do you think this patent has the ability to be a disruptive innovation like the mobile phone was for the computer/phone industry?
