Watching my nephew growing up with az many toys as he wants and all the attention he needs from his parents with all the up-to-dated techniques of dealing with a child, I sometimes feel being jealous of him. It makes me think that kids now here have a better life than ours back then there. Today I saw a Ted Talk video about the future of robots. It made me think how in future my nephew will think when he sees his nephews. I have seen him watching cartoons that are supposed to engage kids and motivate them to do the same physical activity that the cartoon characters do, but I should tell those respectful producers: YOU HAVE FAILED BIG TIME. Kids are not engaged nor motivated to do anything you tell them, they are not fools, they know this video is recorded and it really does not care about the response, so they simply sit and just watch what goes on (at least for kids who are kind of shy to do those stupid stuff in front of other people).
I have to say I really loved the idea of robots. I might regret it one day when they capture the world, but as the woman in the video says, people can feel connected to them (due to many psychological predictors). This never happens with a flat screen. We’ll see in the future how real was Spielberg’s A.I.!
