These don't do much, no back flips or anything, but they'll be great someday for carrying, say, groceries:

Here's a robot that's actually useful.

But I don't understand why people are so lazy they can't just do it themselves.

Not the flashiest video, but it shows that robots can perform repetitive tasks that require precision faster than humans because:
1) they can follow a routine with little variance
2) they error-correct much faster (which has interesting implications)

The conventional wisdom is that robots are "dumb" in the sense that they just follow programming and any mistakes will really mess them up - for example, a robot will walk into a wall again and again, not releasing that it has to use the door.

When in reality, we've gotten to the point where robots are starting to recognize and correct mistakes much faster and more successfully than humans.  Humans apparently either don't recognize mistakes very quickly or don't change their behavior very quickly.  In fact, I could easily see a human complaining that the ring won't properly fit when it actually fits perfectly and it's just placed incorrectly (no matter which way you insert a USB drive, it's always wrong)

In situations where time is of the essence and precision is deathly important (driving, surgery, military, etc), robots could start leading the way.
