One guarantee with four kids in the house is that you will be asked a lot of questions. Why this, what are they doing, why are you doing that, why are you talking funny (when you are stuffy), why do I have to take a bath, and an endless assortment of other questions to keep you hopping, thinking, and answering.
One of the kids turned to me quite seriously the other day with a pressing question that weighs heavily in all of our minds:
“Do robots wear pants?”
I thought about it for a moment, then said, “I don’t think they have to. Maybe some of them do, as part of a costume or uniform.”
I received a contemplative head nod in response, the urgent matter of robot apparel having apparently been resolved in a satisfactory manner.
