2015 Year of the Mobile Manipulator?

I do spend a lot of time on the Internet following the trends in robotics. As collaborative robots have experienced a fair amount of hype over the last two years or so, it just stands to reason that something new must be coming along. With a bunch of small and large companies launching their own cobot models each having special and unique features and now that the market for collaborative robots is steadily increasing in popularity, something else has to be just around the corner, right?! Well, what I figure is that mobile manipulators just might be that next big thing.
