Robots are tools that allow me to do more work. I have a lot of robots.
My simplest robot is a stick that I use to quickly and easily make holes in the ground with to plant seeds. It greatly improves efficiency.
A more complex robot is my tractor. It replaces the need to have about 50 horses on my farm. That's a huge savings in time and it can do things the horses and men couldn't do freeing us up to do other interesting things.
A far more complex tool is my computers which maintain my web sites, do billing, graphics, word processing, bookkeeping and reach out to thousands of customers and many times that in potential customers 24/7. This makes it so I don't have to spend all my time on the phone or going house to house to sell my farm's products.
A wonderful robotic tool to have would be one that could do more general skills with some intelligence, a handyman. I'll have several of those down the road. They'll allow me to do far more than I can now.
Robots are tools. We've been using progressively more complex for millennia. The Luddites have always cried about fears of lost jobs but in each case the tools have empowered those of us who choose to do and create.
