Robotics is the technology that involves the construction and operation of robots. No longer a futuristic concept, robotics are already a part of our lives whether we realize it or not. The following are just 5 ways that robotics is making our lives easier.

1. Remote-Controlled Snow Plow Robot

Who wouldn't love to not have to plow the drive on a cold, snowy day? The 6WD snow plow has already been featured on the Weather Channel. It can also be custom made with different size blades. These types of robotics can plow a driveway, a sidewalk, or the parking lot for a business. It not only makes life easier but provides an element of safety as well.

2. Robotic Vacuuming

Many people have already seen this incredible circular machine that will do the dreaded job of vacuuming. New automation has even enabled this type of robotics to start vacuuming on certain days at specific times. The owner can schedule the machine to vacuum at their convenience. A company has even come up with a vacuum that also washes floors at the same time.

3. Security Robotics

Simply relying on lights to turn on and off or even an alarm system may soon be a thing of the past when leaving our homes. The Agent 007 not only has a security camera installed but can actually shout "Police, freeze!" if an intruder enters the home or even opens a window.

4. Nanda Clocky

With the Nanda Clocky science has invented an interesting way to wake up its owners every morning. This amazing clock will only give a user one chance to keep snoozing before it drives away from the bed. The user is then forced to get up and search for Nanda in order to turn off the alarm.

5. Hybrid Assistive Limbs

This incredible technology can be used to help disabled individuals walk better or aid people during physical therapy and other types of medical rehabilitation. This exoskeleton suit with limbs can interpret muscle signals from the user. The brain thinking "I want to move" is enough to activate the device. It then moves in advance of a person's actual movement.
