Modern drones are of course flying robotic devices, and by a coincidence the Big Picture Science program this morning is all about the science of robotics.
All of this thinking about robotic applications for part 15 makes me wonder about robotic listeners.
A man-like listening droid could be sent on a neighborhood walk, equipped with a “family band” two-way radio in the 800mHz region, and could phone home with reception reports:
“The discussion is good but I crackles in the background. A thunderstorm may be brewing.”
“What was that last word,” you’d ask.
“Brewwingg,” it would say.
Upon passing a neighbor walking her dog the robot would smile and blink, saying,”Nice dog. What’s her name? I’m listening to radio.”
Failing to return home, you’d consider filing a missing robot report.
