I wouldn't mind having one pick up after me.
We had one where I worked that was interesting to watch. It's job was to pick up parts off of a surface, and then place them in another machine. The parts would be dumped on the surface every which way, so the robot had to scan all the parts, decide which one to pick up, and how. It had to make adjustments for each part. Hovering over the parts, it would only take a split second for it to decide which part to go after. Then it would twist its wrist so that it could pick up the part just right, as not to cause any damage. There would be like about a dozen parts to choose from... pretty amazing.

I made and inspected photo electric tubes that were used to detect the flames in boilers. They were a safety device. If the flame went out for whatever reason, the tube would stop producing the electricity that kept the gas line open.... no flame.. no gas.
The robot was in the thermostat area. It was just an arm, about 3 times the length of mine. It was set up with miniature cameras and proximity sensors. When it spotted a part it wanted, it would quickly dive for it, slowing right above it, and then adjust it's wrist to the right position. After depositing the part, it would jump back to it's ready position and scan for the next one.

I think it must have been amazing to watch. I wish you had pictures.
What kind of work did you do?
How big was the robot? Was it intimating?
Sometimes I wish I had one that would tell my son when he is having a melt down to go take a breaks as I do.
He listens to me most of the time but; a robot could prevent him from not listening by standing in the way if he were tall enough without anyone being hurt.
A robot could help my son do things that I do and might help me fade prompts.
