Even before Rosie made her debut on "The Jetsons" in 1962, consumers had been anxiously awaiting the arrival of their personal robot. Well, it's now more than 50 years later, and we have vacuum cleaners and thermostats. What's taking so long for general-use, multi-purpose robots to make it into the home? A panel of robot experts will discuss the challenges to date, the current state of personal robotics, and the social and economic implications of robots in the home.
