Talk:Types of Robots
There are going to be a lot of robots on the Moon but none of them will look like Star Wars characters.

This robot "wants" to do this. That robot "wants" to do that. The robots do not "want" anything, unless they are star wars characters. And do we really need housekeeping robots or computerized phycologists? We should stick to essentials, like Sandworms. T.Neo 07:53, 16 August 2008 (UTC)
- I can certainly see the need for a dust remediation robot. I can also see the need for robots capable of monitoring agricultural products and then picking them when they become ripe. Agriculture is a very involved activity. Time spent tending garden could be used for other activities, and the more it can be automated the more an outpost will be capable of sustaining itself. As for "wanting," I think that's just Tom's expression of what the robots will be programmed to do. The terminology is inaccurate. If you would like to correct it, please do. - Jarogers2001 17:02, 16 August 2008 (UTC)
I fixed the "wanting to" problem. Maybe all external robots (Airlock assistant, safety buddy, etc.) could be the same, with some minor physical changes and differant programming. Do we really need a robot to pick up our socks? I dont like the idea of sending lazy people to the moon. T.Neo 08:15, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
- HAHA! No, I don't think we need a "sock bot." - Jarogers2001 19:41, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
