Yes, it has been coming so long we don't even notice. I remember 10 years ago robots were making mail deliveries around the office by folowing different colored lines on the floor.

I expect that robots will be quite common in the future.  We already have many machines that help us around the home and office.  This is only the logic extension.

Yes, chang0, I have a refrigertor magnet that shows a man with is dog staring at the sunset. The caption reads:

"The more people I meet, the more I like my dog."

Someday that joke might read:

"The more people I meet, the more I like my robot."

BTW I have three dogs and would never trade them for robots even considering their barking and occational "mistakes."

Yes, Maria, there are many tasks robots could perform that would be lifesaving. Not just during disasters, but to help the elderly live at home rather than have to be institutionalized.

With the agility advancing every years and advanced vision technology, robot solders will not be too far away. SciFi will no longer look the same as we develop emotion to robots. I'm definitely looking forward to the day.
