When most people think of industrial robots, they probably picture some big warehouse with lots of machinery, conveyors, and robots moving products, conducting quality inspections, packing products, etc.
And yes, industrial robotics certainly has helped fuel huge automation advances in our packaging and manufacturing industries.
But robots also show up in some rather unexpected places, performing some rather unexpected tasks.
For example, did you ever think a robot could:
- Take your order and mix you up a cocktail?
- Provide set lighting, control cameras, and basically shoot a film?
- Perform noninvasive surgeries on tumors?
- Duel a world champion table tennis player?
