Future Resorts could have robot staff

Even Robot Prostitutes

| Science, Space & Robotics News | Posted: Aug 18, 2009 1:05 pm

The day that robots take over the world is near. I can see it now, it will be just like the book by Michael Crichton that later became the movie WestWorld. Oh wait I have not even told you what I am talking about. Ok, here are the scary details.

 

Recently at Australia's Tourism Futures conference Ian Yeoman talked about resorts where robots would service guests, catering to their every need.

 

This is exactly the sort of thing that was prophesied by the prolific Crichton. Yeoman was quoted as saying;

 

"Robotics will become important, because you're going to have labour shortages in the future,'' he saidÂ…Even robot "prostitutes'' that would not pass on diseases such as HIV could make an appearance."

 

Which on the surface may sound like a lot of fun, but give me the creeps. Thankfully these types of resorts probably won't be around until sometime in 2050 so we have time to prepare.
