Technology's moving so fast it's hard to keep up.
We often take it for granted but do you really like the idea of toys so advanced they know how you feel?
Or super-clever robots with minds of their own?
Or should we be looking at the benefits technology's brought to medicine and communications?
We are no longer taking e-mails on this topic. Please scroll down to read what you had to say...
I think technology is really good if it helps people but I don't think they should bring out new models all the time and toys that think - it's going just a little too far.

I think that if we have robots and things that are so advanced that they can even make good friends, then we won't bother socialising with other people and we will not have proper relationships, which will be sad.

Electrical toys that can almost read your mind? What happened to the simple toys of today? Technology, NO WAY!
Mellisa, 11, Derby
No way, you think about it: a robot that has feelings. You couldn't just throw it away when you're bored or stop playing with it and imagine if it begins to learn. That's just not safe.

Gameboys and computers are great, but all these super-duper clever robots, well I think there's no point for having them, I mean give me one reason why we need them????

I really wouldn't like robots with their own mind. People who make these things should concentrate on good things which everyone will like and buy!
Lydia, 11, Northamptonshire
I think it's stupid having robots doing things like washing because we will end up being lazy.
Greg, 12, Nottingham
I don't mind things like mobiles and computers etc but robots that can speak and think for themselves are just scary. They might become jealous of you and kill you or something!

I think that if we are ready to create intelligent and sentient life forms then we must be prepared for the consequences. Racism and sexism and discrimination are hot topics and full of controversy as to whether or not we've dealt with them in today's society. If we can't respect each other, what hope does an artificial life form have? We should only create life if socially we are ready for the change, and at the moment we are not.

I own a robotic dog. It's good fun but a thing that's not really got a brain to be able to be like a friend is going a bit too far.

I think it's great but I wouldn't like every thing to be like a machine

I think robots would be great in the future for helping people, but I don't see the point of buying expensive robot toys.
Beth, 13, Aberystwyth
Everyone says that in a couple of decades people will have robots more intelligent than us. But how can we design something smarter than us, if we haven't yet got to that stage of intelligence?!

Technology is great. Where would we be with out it? But super-clever robots...that's really freaky. I don't think I'd want one!
Kaleigh, 13, Wethersfield, USA
It's all moving so fast its hard to keep up. Some of the technology is cool but its all way too expensive for anyone to buy so what's the point in inventing it? By the time we can afford it it's not new and in.
Jo, 13, Hinckley
Technology's cool for gadgets but I don't want my toys looking at me!
Olivia, 14, Londonderry
Technology is moving fast but if the robots have their own minds, they wouldn't obey humans and would do anything they want - even kill humans!
Cozy, 13, Manchester
It all seems way too weird, toys asking you if you're ok? That's really scary!
Sarah, 14, Grimsby
Toys can't see us, they don¿t have a mind of their own, they sense us. I think it is totally cool; without technology we wouldn't be able to chat like this!
Tim, 14, Huntingdon
I think it's great but having toys with feeling and things like that is too much!
