I'd be happy if I could just get a robot that could vacuum around all the wires and other crap on my floor.

Of course, this opens things to really trolling the heck out of their training data...

For example,

Coffee Cup:

Guitar:
i49.tinypic.com

Shoes:
i45.tinypic.com

Guitar:

Because robots of the future are going to see the world using crappy Kinect cameras? How will it know if something is the same when you turn it around a few degrees? If I tell it to get my shoes how do I know it won't return with a right sandal and a right loafer? These questions need answered!

I keep an old Conner hard drive in my bathroom as a decoy. Also, to see who gets the reference.
