What would you get a robot to do for you?

Asimo conducting the Detroit Symphony Orchestra

An American orchestra had a very unusual conductor for its latest performance - a robot!

The robot, called Asimo, was programmed to copy a real conductor's movements to lead the orchestra as they played a piece called The Impossible Dream.

So that got us thinking... what would you programme a robot to do for you?

Would you get it to do fun stuff to keep you entertained? Maybe you'd prefer a practical robot that tidies your room and does your homework?
