I think men are too stupid to build robots



It's just no fun when he makes it this easy. Steve, just how old are you?

You might have something there. Certainly when you see a prize being offered to make a robot vehicle that can travel between Barstow and Las Vegas, instead of for example a domestic house cleaning robot that can also fix meals and do the dishes one has to wonder what the priorities are. A cruise missile does an excellent job of flying to its' target, using a combination of data from inertial and GPS navigation systems. But of course that is in the air without little rocks and ruts a ground vehicle can fall over.. My company assembles a gated shutter 3-D optical scanner that can be set in position then will proceed to map all distances to objects within a given volume with a resolution of less than a fraction of an inch. Placed on a mobile powered platform, for example, using the IBOT chassis http://www.powerchair-review.fsnet.co.uk/ibot-3000-transporter-independence-technology.htm with the scanner mounted on top it could map out the interior of a home without difficulty, thus providing data for navigation within the house. Some waldo designs borrowed from nuclear labs for picking and placing objects, with motorized extension and retraction, under computer control after initial training of for example fixing a meal, collecting, and cleaning dishes, and one could have the beginnings of a useful domestic robot.
Men continue to misunderstand the amount of labor that goes into keeping house and raising a family. Perhaps it will indeed take a woman to build the first universal useful robots...

From your post I can rule out at least one woman from the possible multitudes who will one day rule over us men while inventing everything of worth. Absolutely we are obsolete! After all, what do we do anymore? I mean if you discount philosophy, religion, science, education, governing, enforcing laws, entertaining, creating artwork, supplying half of the genetics of children, manufacturing, etc., we are some lazy bastards, huh? Note that women can do all of these things and in fact do many of them, but then I never said that women are obsolete child-idiots in adult bodies. As to children with adult bodies, one might argue that either that is good since children have not lost their imaginations, or that women are more childlike since an aspect of acting adult is controlling one's emotions. I prefer to think that each individual is different, and therefore women and men are about equally idiotic and childlike on the whole. I predict that someone will laugh at you in the near future. I guarantee you that someone has laughed at you in the recent past.

Hmm. Multitudes of women ruling over me. Cool.

And somewhere around the time of 04/09/2004 22:51, the world stopped and listened as Nathalie Hutt contributed the following to humanity:

Problem is that women generally don't have that "out of the box" creativity that men do. As for your child reference...Yep, I can agree to that.

Um...No.
Remember, without a man, YOU wouldn't be here, and neither would the rest of us.

I think I'm inclined to agree. I've spent nearly 3 years designing this bipedal 'thing', the domain name has been renewed but never used, all I have are lots of very clever mechanisms which don't quite join together to form a cohesive whole.
I think my problem is that I start designing at the knees (limited space, awkward shape, 20 ft.lbs req'd) then spread out. By the time I reach the fingertips I have invariably found a better lever system or a better motor and want to apply it to the knees. The enemy of a good idea is a better idea, round and round I go in ever decreasing circles.
Perhaps I should ask myself, "How would a woman escape this loop?"

Join the club. I also have loads of unfinished subsystems and prototypes scattered all over the workshop. Still, even Leonardo did that, so it's probably nothing to be ashamed of. It's just always annoying when you keep coming up with better ways to build things before finishing the last attempt, and end up with a huge heap of junk.
If you do figure out a way of breaking the loop, please share it!

The track record said it all.....
There are more men robot builders than women .
BTW your comment looks childish in itself

That is rather interesting! I got exactly 100 original posts to various groups from Nathalie regarding "Dumb men". Wonder what set her off?

Lol... ok, her claim was pure provocation, but what you just said is really borderline... insulting, I'd say.
"Most women I know can't get over themselves enough to do anything useful" ---> I think you might need to check out what's out there... This claim was as hilarious as hers... ;-)
