Saw this video on what robots are capable of, nowadays. Got me to thinking about programming it for door-knocking, cold calls, and cold walks. Imagine seeing a tractor-trailer cruising your neighborhood, dropping off robots to canvas your neighborhood. Imagine robo-hare krishnas at airports, robo-Jehovah Witnesses, etc.

Robots already cold call for all sorts of products. They give the pitch and then you press a button, or sometimes just hold on the line to hear more...from a live person. I can see more very specfic and direct marketing comming before robots. IE coupons or ads for near by resturaunts or gas stations popping up on your nav screen as you go by. Smart screens that let you see product demos, using touch screen or voice command prompts, in airports and subways.
