I agree. However, it looks like a good place to start developing a much more advanced robot that could be very useful for people who need someone else to help care for them.

Hmm. We've not yet seen the killer application. We can carry an iPad under our arm as we walk; what is this iRobot going to do for us to become invaluable?

I believe, gesture recognition applied in robotic would move to next gen in near future. It might be possible to play tennis with a robot on real court soon? :)

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
