Entertainment RobotsEntertainment RobotsEntertainment robots are just beginning to be developed and made available to the public. They have the ability to speak and respond to the spoken word. They can be used to entertain people at various events or operate as a roving advertisement. More uses for robots in the entertainment field will be forthcoming as more inexpensive, sophisticated programming becomes available. For instance, look at Figure 2-6. The entertainment industry uses robots to take pictures where it would otherwise be impossible to photograph. Special cameras readily adaptable to robot control have been developed for better photography and television coverage of events and operations of all sorts.
