I doubt if this robots will catch a virus, will they need to seek for medication?? lol 😀 .. seriously, this is scary.. what if this robots will get a virus or get hacked, and then malfunction, then rewrite their own code and break the robotics law, you know what will happen next..

“There are several things about the robotics market that seem to mirror the PC days of the late 1970s,” says Tandy Trower, general manager of Microsoft’s new robotics group. “The key applications that are going to trigger the growth of the technology are still in question. Hardware is fragmented, with little standardization. And there are haves and have-notes — some companies and university labs with the ability to build a whole robot ecosystem from the hardware to the software, and then a wider audience that is anxious to interact with the technology, but just doesn’t have the resources to do it.”
