  1. This article really made me think. The idea of a robot that helps you do things is very interesting. It would make my life a lot easier! However, the price is extremely high. I don't know how many people will be able to afford $16,000. So after reading the article I think the robot could be very helpful but also very expensive.

    4. it is shocking that the cost 16,000 dollars.
      I've been looking up the robots and it said they were only for studying or school purpuses. That would be cool if they made family robots for you too take home! I also read next year there going to relese more walking or more like human robots. But they will be very expensive!

    5. The article really made me think that robots will be helpful to people but the article doesn't say what the bad things could happen in the article. So it might do something bad when you first buy it. I don't trust it yet because the owners might want to trick people into buying it and then they will say "No exchanges or no returns! Commercials do that sometimes and when you buy it would go wrong.This is Kasey!

    The robot would be helpful to have. He could remind you of things, help you with your homework and chores, or just be a friend and cheer you up with a joke.

  4. Austin, I wonder if the robot is able to sense a person's feelings? It would be nice to have a friend always by your side. Plus the robot looks cheerful too. Even though the robot is not real, he seems to have a friendly expression on his face.

    1. Did you notice in the article it said the robots wouldn't be available until 2040? So you could pay for the robot now, but then you wouldn't receive it for another 27 years!

      I agree with Ms. Hamilton because you can pay for it now, but you get it in 27 years. In 27 years I think robots will be a lot smarter.

      Delete
    3. Jacob, right on! You might get it 27 years from now, but the robot may seem like a dinosaur compared to other robots in 2040. I wonder what the cost of robots will be in 2040?

      Delete
    4. I agree with you Mrs.Hamiton! In about 27years things have to change because if they don't than somthings rong! Also they are $16,000and they are only 26 or 27 inches long!!!!

      Delete
    5. I agree with you Mrs. Hamilton. Like in 27 years things are going to change because it's a lot of years from now and technology will be different. In 2040 there might be better technology than there is now so if you order it now you might waste your money on something that might change and get better in the future.
