Seven in 10 people would be happy to trust a robot to do all of their chores, according to new research.

A new study of 2,000 Americans examined people’s attitudes toward chores and technology and revealed 73 percent of respondents think their homes would be cleaner if they had robots doing their chores.

Some were even willing to turn to fictional solutions — seeing as 48 percent said they’d want to live in the home from the “Smart House” with its motherly holographic assistant.

Other top cinematic abodes that respondents admitted they’d like to live in included the toast-making house in “Wallace + Gromit” (39 percent), self-making beds in “The Fifth Element” (37 percent) and high-tech security from “The Purge” (37 percent).

Forty-four percent would love to cruise around on a hoverboard from Back to the Future or wield a lightsaber from Star Wars.

The study, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Roborock, found that people are embracing a robotic revolution in their domestic worlds and are excited by the potential of what’s to come.

Another favorite piece of movie technology was artificially-intelligent assistant J.A.R.V.I.S. from Iron Man (43 percent), so it’s no surprise then that 84 percent would give their robot a human name.

Some would opt for a fairly simple name like “Jack” or “Jane,” but others preferred more formal names like “Gizelle,” “Benedict” or “Herman” for their robot.

In spite of people’s willingness to let technology handle their dull chores, there’s still some things respondents think require a human hand.

Forty-two percent would never let a robot change a baby’s diaper, and two in five would not allow a robot to be in charge of making dinner.

Results also found 35 percent wouldn’t want a robot picking up after their dog or driving their kids to school.

“Day-to-day chores like washing dishes and doing the vacuuming are boring, repetitive and take up a lot of time,” said a spokesperson for Roborock.

“That is where a Roborock robot vacuum in your home can help. It frees people from clean up, so they can use their time better elsewhere.”

There are some chores people cannot stand — three in 10 admitted to avoiding vacuuming.

Other top chores people try to get out of included washing the car (46 percent), raking leaves (44 percent), folding and putting away laundry and mowing the lawn (both 43 percent).

“Home robots, including everything from robot vacuums to window washers to dishwashers and more can tackle domestic chores better than most people,” added the spokesperson for Roborock.

“They are built for the task, work regularly, never get bored and they don’t stop till the job is done.”
