Robot Seals Help Japan's Tsunami Victims

Robot Seals Help Japan's Tsunami Victims

SRSLY?

For some elderly survivors of Japan's March earthquake and tsunami, comfort comes in the form of a small white robotic seal named Paro.

Fears of post tsunami radiation contamination from the nearby nuclear plant officials to evacuate the retirement home for two months until Mid-may.

A week after they returned, the robotics division of Japanese company Daiwa House offered to lend Suisyoen two of its seal robots coated with anti-bacterial fur, now nicknamed Love and Peace for two years.

While some retirement homes have used animals to help with therapy for residents, Suisyoen's General Manager Taku Katoono said that using this sort of therapeutic robot lowered many of the barriers that would normally be in the way of using live animals.

Yeah, we don't get it either.
