Half of all the world's domestic robots are now in Japan.

More than any trade deficit this robot deficit and the more important idea deficit that it dramatizes should be a source of concern to modern Americans.

By watching this program, you get to see a lot of technology that really is mind blowing from personal jet packs to cars that drive under water to energy sources that don't wreak havoc on the environment. This DVD is at one time a great example of gee whiz science and a resource manual for the types of projects we should be getting behind.

Throughout history true international power and influence have more often than not been led by societies who are on the cutting edge of emerging technologies and also by societies whose educational systems support such initiatives. This is a sad thought to contemplate as the United States now observes its first year in over forty years without having a manned space vehicle.

Sadly, while the technology may change over the years, the lesson imparted doesn't seem to in that those who fail to learn from history are often forced to repeat it.
