Stacey’s robotics classes are having a lot of fun building the technology of the future. They’ve even built robotic crocodiles! Yes, that seems random, but that’s what they wanted to create. With this class being offered at Stacey, we could make robots to better the world we live in.
There was an article in the news that Raju Institute of Technology built a robot for people with arthritis and strokes. It was specifically made to help these patients read books without the struggle.
The number of people with arthritis and disabilities because of strokes and other events. “Approximately 350 million people worldwide have arthritis. It is estimated that by 2031, the number of people living with arthritis will increase by 6.5 million.”
This means that the demand for caretakers will dramatically increase. Soon enough, there won’t be enough abled people in the world to fulfill that need. Hence, robots.
As you can probably tell, the demand for products that can aid the consumer is growing bigger by the year. At first, it was reading glasses, then it was hearing aids. Now, it’s robots to turn pages.
It’s only a matter of time before we’ll all have housekeeping robots to make sure our house and our lives aren’t a mess.
Maybe some of Stacey’s students will be leading the way someday.
