Robots.
Although robots are not yet able to replace humans in every possible way,
people still look to a future when this dream (or nightmare) will be realized.
Producing a robot that can think may still be many decades away. Basic robot-like
machines have been introduced into factories to do menial jobs, resulting in greater
productivity and efficiency. On the other hand, many people have complained that
their introduction has resulted in a reduction in the number of jobs that are now
available, thereby contributing to high unemployment.
Solar Power.
In many hot countries distinctive solar panels can now be seen on an
increasing number of roofs. Solar power, the energy from the sun, enables people to
have a constant supply of hot water, and in some cases the energy can be stored for
night usage. In colder countries with predominantly cloudy weather the system is
not so effective. In countries with a lot of sunshine all year round solar power is
very convenient. However, not all people can afford to have solar panels installed,
and even when installed the panels need regular servicing.
