Christmas Day at YaYa and Ben’s: Robot

Archie got a yellow robot for Christmas, which he and Matt put together in time for Robot to come to YaYa and Ben’s for dinner. Robot scooches around the house, a bit like a Roomba. Robot can sense objects in front of it, and changes direction. You can see Ben’s hand in front of Robot’s face/sensor, heading it in a new path. The little thing is oddly appealing and engaging, and I get a slight intimation of how robots are being successfully used to provide company for the frail elderly. 🙂
