Our lead INSIDER story today focused on the environmental impacts of robotics and automation.

The more surprising, and hard to predict, aspects are likely to be how the new technologies alter our own relationships with nature and the outdoor world, Dr. Martin Dallimer told Tech Briefs.

“Will we find ourselves barely going outside at all as everything gets delivered to our door, or will the ability to access fun, real-time information on what animals and plants live near us, and what they are doing (breeding, migrating, flowering) lead to a new explosion in interest in nature?” asked Dallimer.

What do you think? Will Robotics and Automation Lead to a Greater Appreciation of Nature?
