Robotics News

The robotics industry is one that is evolving fast, but we have made it easy to stay up-to-date with developments. The Wiser daily robotics news email contains the latest articles from around the web so that you get the news and information that you need. It is an industry that has fascinated people for decades. It concerns the production of robots as well as machines that react to sensory input. While robots are not commonly used in the everyday homes of Americans, they are used extensively in industry and the military. New technologies are being developed all the time though, plus investors are putting money into research and development. This will result in new robotic products and services in everything from the health industry to schools to the home. Most of the robots in the near future are likely to perform specific tasks, rather than the multi-functional machines found in the movies and in science fiction novels. Every day sees a new advance, so if you have an interest in the field, sign up for the robotics news email from Wiser. It is easy-to-use, comprehensive and free.
