Re: From Industry to Health Care: Robotics can Help
@technocrati- Well, maybe not entirely back to the drawing board. Maybe we just need to change our definition of robot. One thing I've seen used a lot are cute robots with faces that are intended to keep people calm. there is one being tested in Japan that has the face of a teddy bear.
I wonder if instead, we should just make it look like a machine. On the other hand, the people working on this have data i don't have access to. I'll see if I can get some of it and see if the faces help.
Personally, I look at them and they remind me of Chucky or some other horror character that is so cute they are scary. :)
