Well I’ve never had the fear that a robot could replace me. Until now. A new Hello Kitty Robot unveiled in Japan can act as a receptionist.
“When Hello Kitty Robots detect visitors with sensors, they say "Welcome!", capture the image/voice of the visitors using cameras/microphones, and send the data to a personal computer. They can work at offices, hospitals, and hotels (at night)” (via wemakemoneynotart).
Although I would like to be able to go pee without having to ask someone. And I could defer difficult people to the robot.
“I’m sorry you’ll have to speak to the kitty”.
Now I just need a life size robo sapien. I can ride him home and pinch people that annoy me.
