Question
Have you ever built a robot that helps you clean your house?

Answer
There are vacuum cleaners on the market now that can chase around the house vacuuming up the floor without bumping into furniture, etc.

But to clean the whole house may be far away. It may take several different robots, each with its own skill.  

What do you think an automatic dishwasher is?  Or a toaster?  Or a refrigerator is?  Only a generation or two away our forefathers thought these kinds of machines were taking over human responsibilities.  Now, our generation takes them for granted.  Time marches on.
