Robots Population
About 570,000 robot lawnmowers and 37,000 vacuum cleaners were in use in 2003. Entertainment robots, such as Sony's dog companion Aibo, continue to fascinate human beings. Last year, 692,000 of them were in operation.
The U.N. study estimates that 4.1 million robots marketed to consumers will be in service by 2007.
