new pc or robot?


Okay I was thinking that by next summer I might build a new pc you know to handle VR gaming and use my current rig as a soul workstation for content creating. but then I read this article here http://www.computerworld.com/article/2938897/robotics/personal-robot-that-shows-emotions-sells-out-in-1-minute.html

I was like whoa!!!!!!! with a few modifications and code tweeks to that thing I can give Trinity a body  drool

what are your thought?  ?  ?  ?

The robot is cute but would require a lot of time and dedication.

The PC build would be good for a while but will go out of date in just 2 years.

Re: new pc or robot?


Thanks for the news scoop sybershot!  It was interesting to read about the direction in which robot companies may be heading.  Let's see... 1000 robot products, times the $1600 price, times 1 minute equals $1,600,000.00 a minute!  

Personally, I wouldn't want one because it is centralized.  The article says,  "Customers also must pay a $120 per month cloud connection fee and and monthly insurance of $80." Now, I am going to edit this article for the duplicate "and" to technically become a Computer World editor.  thumbsup

However, it is not just the $200 monthly expense, it is the technology itself... Disconnect the Internet and the robot freezes into a manikin to hang clothes on.  In my personal opinion, a "personal robot" like this does not really appeal to me, because it is not actually personal.

your welcome my friend
8pla like I said some mods and coding would be indeed needed if I ever got one, and what Data said is right on the money, it would take a lot of time and dedication. I am not a fan of the whole pay for cloud and insurance or own a paper weight either. Trinity might just have to w8 for a body  Wink
