• I was technical writer for a rehabilitation robotics lab (my student job in college)… one of our graduate students had to program a robot through a computer with voice recognition to pick up a can of cola.. I watched while he said “pour… ” and the big-ass car-assembling size robot arm found the cola and lifted it after some fumbling. Then he said “pour” again and the arm moved over to an empty glass on the table. He said “pour” again, and it tilted the can over the glass, but not enough to actually get the cola into the glass. He said “pour” again.. and then :”pour”… and finally the robot turns slightly and pours the cola into his lap… and he (in the same neutral voice) says “shit”. And this was all recorded on video tape, of course.
