When I was little, I always thought that I would have a robot friend by now. It hasn’t happened, but I’m glad to see some progress in robotics development. You may have seen video of the female humanoid robot called Actroid-F, developed by Kokoro; now she has a brother. These robots will assist children with developmental disorders and talk with the elderly to prevent mental decline. Maybe one day, I will get to have a robot friend.
