Futuristic Robots As Common As Dishwashers

ADAMSTOWN, Penn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The future is gonna look a lot like The Jetsons.

That’s the prediction made by Joe Knedlans, owner and curator of the Toy Robot Museum in Adamstown, Pennsylvania.

Knedlans has amassed a collection of thousands of toy robots over the last 25 years, after his wife gave him his first one as a joke since he used to work with robots during his tenure as a member of the SWAT team.

The collector says he really enjoys seeing young people come into his museum because “this is their future.”

He says, “Robots are gonna be commonplace in their lives and homes as much as folks from my generation have dishwashers and clothes dryers.”

Knedlans believes kids in the future will have help with all their chores from “bi-pedal, anthropomorphic individuals,” which will benefit them as much as it benefitted him on the SWAT team.

He explains, “I worked directly with three of the remote level investigators – the robots. They were bomb disposal machines.”
