Millibots

They're pretty cool I guess...

Milli-bots are extremely cool robots that are SUPER small! They are great for security/hostage situations and search and rescue missions! Some advantages of milli-bots are being able to link together and make a virtual map of a room and work together, and are fairly cheap. Some disadvantages are that they are very clumsy and very fragile. They have 2 flexible joints which includes 2 wheels and a swiveling top, it has 5 degrees of freedom. It is not multi-functional. Heat-sensors detect warm bodies and cameras to detect objects in the way, there is also one with a camera that is 360-degrees so it can see all of it's surroundings. The impact the robot can have on it's intended audience is that hostages could be saved and it could help the military. It can create jobs for people to produce milli-bots and people to control them. This robot could be altered to perform more tasks in the future such as watch prisoners, monitor babies, monitor the elderly, and much more! Here are some photos of milli-bots!

Sounds like a lot of...

But it's not...

Conclusion

Our concerns about robots in the future of our society is that we are worried that we will program robots to be of equal intelligence to humans so they will be as powerful as us, which is not good.

We think that giving up control to a machine is a bad idea because it could make us lazy and not physically active and just relying on robots.
