The intrusion of intelligent, autonomous machines into our everyday lives has long been more than just a utopian fantasy. In part silently and invisibly, robotics has already fundamentally changed broad areas of our living and working environments, whereby the relationship of human beings to this new technology is often ambivalent. In this tour, we make contact with an increasingly ubiquitous species: the robot.
