Imagine your own robotic identical twin. How about a robot that does household drudge work - or cuddles up next to you? Interested? Intrigued? Well it’s not too far away. A robot revolution is upon us. And it’s guaranteed to change the way we see ourselves. Robots have become our colleagues, even our companions. Some look like animals or toys. But others look disturbingly like us. All of them have been developed to act like us, feel and think like us. Why? What’s driving our need to develop intelligent and emotional machines? Roboticize Me is a provocative, intelligent and often amusing exploration into this emerging universe. And it’s probably the first documentary ever co-hosted by a robot.
