Robots Ate My Job

Tech
Robots have come a long way -- from factories and into homes -- and jobs for robot makers and minders are on the upswing. Pictured here: Marion "Tank" Lefleur is the robo-receptionist at Carnegie Mellon's Robotics Institute.  He is a social robot, greeting and directing people to where they need to go.  If you ever meet him, be sure to ask about his love of David Bowie.
