Ignoring the Robots

Fascinating piece on the history of 'robots'.   Back to the 15th century.   Meant to do real jobs or just impress?  Far too expensive to just impress, but I will accept that is part of the reason.  ...... And we have long known that even the appearance of capability or intelligence can be a powerful thing.  But today there is much more attention paid to actually measuring value.  And their cost will not be ignored.

Please ignore the robots  in the Verge.
