Default The CAR : best and most useful ROBOT ever made by man ?

Hi Friends,

Over the weekend, on a driving holiday, i was pondering over this question?

What is the best and most useful ROBOT ever made by man ?

i think it is The Car

1. it is affordable to atleast 25% of the people across the world
2. It simplifies commuting, one of the basic need of the humans
3. it has limited degrees of freedom, forward, backward, angular, circular in only one axis.
4. it is one of the safest and reliable machines
5. it comes in consumer friendly shapes, sizes and looks
6. there could be more

What do you think ?,

Is The CAR the best and the most useful ROBOT ever made by man ?


Note to Mods : If this post is in wrong section, please move it to the right section.

In my view Bike is not the most safe vehicle.
where as Car is safer.

None of these two, Bike or Car can move automatically. It always needs a human for getting direction or basically to do it's required job. So I don't think we can call a Car or a Bike a Robot. They are not.
But yes, if someone asks probably they are two of the most important things that has been invented by Human race.
