Caring for our elders…the new fashioned way!

“Here comes a robot called uBOT-5 developed by a group of researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst to take care of the elderly people, in place of a human medical care giver. This robot has been designed similar to the human anatomy with the sense of vision and touch. This robot can intimate the Baby Boomers, the time for taking medicines and when to do grocery shopping.
uBOT-5 has the ability to track the movement of the elders, sense and intimate the remote medical technician if they fall down or if no movement is recognized from the old people. The robot has also been designed to converse with the elders so that they would not feel lonely.
The uBOT-5 also has the ability to recognize outsiders or parcels blocking its path. In fact, it can lift about 2.2 pounds and carry to another place, the researchers say. The uBOT-5 carries a Web cam, a microphone, and a touch-sensitive LCD display so that it acts as interface for communicating with the outside world.”
“Boy, how awesome is it going to be when I am being touched, watched, and reminded to take drugs by this charmer!”
“Who needs people when you have this adorable automaton for interfacing with the outside world.”
“I can’t wait until I am old and can no longer take care of myself so I can have a 24/7 surveillance drone buzzing around my domicile keeping an eye on me so nothing unexpected (death?) disrupts my expensive prescription drug regiment…”
“what could possibly go wrong?”
From the nation that has brought us the butter pen, umbrella tube, and eye-drop funnels comes a lovely old person washing machine, just throw your dirty and troublesome wrinkle-bag in this gizmo, set the appropriate wash cycle and hit the start button, in just a jiffy you have one sparkling clean elder. The future looks bright and clean for these technophile old farts.
The folks around here are eagerly looking forward to a future with absolutely no human contact. Here is an image of woman sexually interfacing with a lover (client?) using communications technology and remotely controlled, robotic, sex-machines… With those flexible lighting solutions and the variety of camera angles provided by the documentary film crew, it is just like being there and operating the machines in person… now that is hot.
