As much as there’s a waryness about too much technology, this bit about disabled folks using telerobotics to do useful things made me think that we might see some unique things down (and perhaps on) the road in our own lives.

In this “use case” devices are being controlled by people who can’t do physical things in the real world in cafes.  Driving trucks, running construction equipment; those and every other job that AI might take could be done by these folks, as the ZH article notes.  It is all dependent on high tech, high-speed communications, and other reliable infrastructure, of course, and that might not exist down the road.  More on this to follow.
