I think the hope is that the bear would eventually be able to synthesize tutorial programs, to teach the children like interactive games currently do.
They could be a life partner for the child..a life partner with batteries.
I can't wait for the day when our children are completely dependent on their toys for guidance. I will shriek with laughter on that day, I'll yell
In a way this is a great breakthrough, like the atom bomb, but it will almost certainly have very bad consequences (not entirely unexpected, just
mostly unavoidable). Some parents will use this stuffed bear to watch their small children when they're away. Combine this design with the asimo
mobile frame...you have a robotic baby sitter.
At least you ladies can stop worrying about your husbands!
No more younger women in the house, just circuit boards and wires. The size of the
bear is much larger than Teddy from Spielberg's AI, it's currently not mobile. Soon though, soon.
It's a new world we're walking into. Live forever, automate the reproduction of your cell line, raise them with furry mechanized remote control
nanny bears, and fly to venus for a relaxing vacation aboard a luxury space yacht. Gotta love the future. Well, you gotta love my future.
The real thing could be quite different. Can't you just see it? Armies, Legions of children and Bears with black camera eyes, toting guns, marching
in the streets...
The terminator is real folks...and he has fur!
