Robots: Future Technologies and How They Will Effect Us.
What will life be like in fifty years? Will our home life be more comfortable? Will our jobs become easier? Will our health become better due to new technology? It is most likely to turn out this way. According to scientist, robots will be doing our yard work, taking over some of our jobs, and monitoring our health on a daily basis. Does this sound unbelievable? This might just be the kind of world our grandchildren will grow up in.

"Experts say that manual labor will be all together eliminated by the year 2050."(Reed 3) The teaching profession will also be drastically effected. Electronic books could replace textbooks and even teachers. The transportation industry will also see a decrease in human workers. With the use of magnetic tracks, and computer driven shuttles and busses people will be transported safely and more efficient then humans ever could.

"Our alarm clocks will to report your hydration level and signal the refrigerator to prepare you a drink."(Gorman 2) Our toothbrushes will be observing our mouth for gum disease, tooth decay, and abnormal cells....
