Technology advancing

We’ve gone from horses to cars, from typewriters to computers and from crab to imitation crab. Will we ever go from human to robot? Expensive new technology is making this change possible much faster than it took for modern humans to evolve. Now, this new creation says that it is possible now. Instead of going to school, work or anywhere, all you would need to do is send your robotic self over to where you need to go. Try the new Anybots, the wonderful robots that shall replace you everywhere. These robots keep a live webcam video of your face, and they can pick up any sound around you, so you can hear and see anything that goes on around the robot of you. How very useful.
