That the robot will start wiping your bowl of leftovers with a sponge brush, or not realize that it really needs to work at that dried flake of oatmeal, or wipe the screen with a squeegee.

Being able to physically and appropriately perform these tasks is amazing, but it's just one part of a very complex set of processes. For that reason, I think these robots will be put to better use in a controlled industrial/service setting, rather than someone's living space.
