Chilling rise of Chinese humanoid robots with calls for one in EVERY home & workforce to be replaced with droid army

March 23, 2024

HUMANOID robots might "soon" be brought to the homes of everyday people, according to a new robotics centre in Beijing. An unnamed source with the Beijing Humanoid Robot Innovation Centre told the Beijing Youth Daily: "It is the dream of every humanoid robot company to bring humanoid robots into thousands of households." There are fears humanoid robots could be yet another type of "disruptive innovation" - like computers, smartphones, and new-energy vehicles. American firms such as Tesla and OpenAI-backed Figure are already working on humanoid robots. The MIIT last year announced its plans to mass-produce humanoid robots - producing about 500 robots per 10,000 workers - by 2025.
