Robot Maker Creates Boy Companion


www.breitbart.com

Unlike clearly artificial robotic toys, Hanson says he envisions Zeno as an interactive learning companion, a synthetic pal who can engage in conversation and convey human emotion through a face made of a skin-like, patented material Hanson calls frubber.

"It's a representation of robotics as a character animation medium, one that is intelligent," Hanson beams. "It sees you and recognizes your face. It learns your name and can build a relationship with you."

It's no coincidence if the whole concept sounds like a science-fiction movie.

This will be great for elderly people who have no kin, and are tired of nurse wratchet making her rounds in the nursing home. Many elderly in Japan have to hire or rent actors to come and visit for an hour. That can get expensive and grating also. Priced at less than a sony Playstaion 3 this will make a welcome addition to any household..
