Japan has the fastest growing elderly population, so in an effort to address this demographic, they created the Paro Therapeutic Stuffed Animal Robot. The robot seal moves it's head and legs and recognizes its name. Great, but why is this therapeutic?
Will Paro listen to my problems and tell me to write down the reasons why I don't feel good enough? Will Paro tell me to look in the mirror and tell me to say five valueable things about myself? Will the Paro meet me for coffee in the morning when I am feeling week, or hold my hair when I have had too much to drink? WTF? I hate you PARO! You're never there for me!
