Androids. Cyborgs. Robots. Robots are no longer a fantasy but a rising reality. They are a key technology changing our everyday lives. These changes may include the way we spend our leisure time, using smart and sophisticated machines designed for fun - Entertainment Robots. In this episode, we marvel at Mantis, a two ton insect, and Tradinno, a giant fire-spitting dragon. We then let robots take the stage as we watch a mechanical actor and a robotic pianist perform. How long will it take for full-blown robotic shows to become popular? Can robots go beyond entertainment to become a viable tool for education and learning?
