One day robots may become sentient and take over the world. Until then, we're free to boss them about, so we want to know: What job would you give a robot?

Perhaps you'd make robots clean your room, or prepare delicious snacks?

I would make a robot clean the dishes and make beds!

I would make my robot cook for me and do my homework for me.

I would like a robot to work in mines so people don't have to go underground. I would also like a robot that sorts out my Lego bricks.

My robot would help me with my home work.
