My Real World "Star Wars" Moment

Recently, when my daughter was being born, I was walking the hallway of the hospital and I had a real double-take moment. I saw a robot or a "droid" if you will traveling down the corridor of the hallway! I looked around to see if anybody was controlling it but I didn't see anyone. I stopped a nurse and asked her about it. She said it was a medicine delivery robot and it was fully automated. It traveled the hallways freely and did its job on its own. Wow. I walked away thinking how close we are to actually having droids like in Star Wars. Where's my R2 unit to serve me beverages?

  1. To serve drinks, and secretly stash weapons. The irony is that it distributes medicine. Our first droid is a drug dealer.
