    These robots showed up in this video and Steve Jurveston is actively investing in them.

    So it got my thinking: We always have wanted robots like in The Jetesons to do things for us like get us ready. It seems like you could buy one of these, show it how to blow-dry hair or anything like that (make-up, etc..) and then let it do it for you. These are all very simple actions for the AI to mimic.

    What do you think? Maybe they are too big right now and will need to wait 10-20 years for the size to scale down, but they could be inserted into walls or something....

    Interesting, thanks for posting. I just read about AI at Wait But Why and this video fits right into what I read there. It (robots) will be happening more and more, faster and faster.
