Anitha meets her friends and shares her experience of a robot expo.
Friends: Hi, you look excited. Anything special?
Anitha: Yes! I went to the ‘ROBOT EXPO’ yesterday.
I was so excited seeing all the robots.
Friends: Tell us more!
Anitha: A humanoid welcomed me into the hall.
Friends: What is that?
Anitha: A robot that looks like a human. It even knew my name, I was so surprised and shocked that I stood there frozen.
Anitha: I am just getting started. A robot just looked at me and named the things I had with me.
Friends: Amazing, it must have scanned you with its eyes!
Anitha: The next robot danced for the songs played by the visitors. I suddenly found a butterfly sitting on my shoulder. To my surprise, it was a robot. There were robots of ants and fish too.
Friends: An ant robot? Wow!
Anitha: I saw a robot cooking dishes and serving all. It served me an omelette.
Friends: Don’t we all wish for a ‘COOK ROBOT’ at home!
Anitha: Adding to my excitement, a robot collected and dropped an empty water bottle into the dustbin. Then, it advised all of us to use dustbin.
Anitha: Then there was a robot that asked me “Do you want to make a robot?” I eagerly nodded my head and said “Yes! But, I don’t know how to make it.” It replied, “Don’t worry. I will help you.”
Then, it said “Let us make a robot that can run. There are three main parts in this robot. First is the controller it acts as the brain. Second is the mechanical parts that will help the robot move. Third is the sensors that will help the robot sense walls and other things on its way so that it does not crash into these objects. All these parts work together to make the robot run.”
Then, I put these 3 parts together with the robot and made a robot myself. This expo has made me really interested in robots. I am planning to make more robots. Will you all join me?
Friends: We would love to!
