Many factors as technology low prices and the rise of open-source hardware and software, with a large and active community behind them, makes robotics present as an inflexion point that is worth reviewing. In this work, the state of the art in robotics, going deep in social interaction between human and robots, is developed. It also analyses open-software and open-hardware tools for designing robots. With these two points settled, a software and hardware modeling is proposed to design a hypothetical robot in the following environments: industrial, ill and aged people, education, entertainment and in the military sector.
