Paro the Seal

Thanks to Chinky for sending in this article from Today and for a video of Paro the seal in all its mechanised glory that he took over the weekend! Though more sophisticated, this reminds me of the dolls that would close their eyes when you put them down horizontally - and was that a pacifier in the seal's mouth?

The "pet therapy" evidence is really based on "live" pets and not inanimate robots with no life in their eyes. How can anyone respond to this?

Yes - so true.

Toys for adults who fear any kind of responsibility and commitment???
