Wow, it's been a while since I've posted. Anyway, my subject is personal robotics. Lately I've been reading posts on www.deviantart.com about how people would like a bot that fits in your hand. Seeing that the trend is having affordable robots connect to the web via the local network for processing power, it is entirely possible. Larger bots would be limited to industrial, commercial, and household tasks. The little critters will be about the size of a cell phone, and have a USB connection for a power hookup.
The trick will be not losing them like phones and PDAs during the course of the day!
