Robotics continues to progress, but how far will it go? Will robotics ever surpass my ability to throw a ball in the air and catch it? In the future could a robot be built that has the agility of a great athlete, juggler, or fighter? I wouldn't consider the robotic musicians as evidence...

Until we get to the future, we can't show that there will be any slowdown in progress in robotics. There could most certainly be robots that do advanced things as good as, or even better than humans. The main problem is getting it to think in the way it is supposed to.

Could a robot do this?

Theoretically, yes.

We currently have robotic systems performing actions more precisely than humans such as surgery. These systems still rely on the input of the surgeon for the coordination of its movement. It would be possible to "record" the input of the surgeon and allow it to move without any help from an outside observer, but this would be incredibly dangerous as not everyone's body parts/organs are the same (unless we further modify the machine with the ability to discern the human anatomy).

So we have slightly achieved this in some ways. It just needs refining.

I hope someday yes!

I don't think a robot will ever attain the higher characteristics of man, but like everyone else I'll just have to wait and see. I've been wrong before after all.

Plus the fact that unforeseen circumstances may always arise, and no recording can compensate for something unforeseen.
