Cables for kids

Posted by: Hammer / 12:03 PM

I love the posiblities of technology. But I think I might be spending too much time futzing with my new MythTV system and Wii. When I read this article on robots I was confused:

The researchers who are injecting humanity into robotics are creating robots that can connect with humans in a more "thoughtful" way. They are building robot receptionists and robot physical therapists. They are finishing work on Huggable, a teddy bear robot line that will help monitor the mental and physical health of sick children for only a few thousand dollars apiece. Robots are coaxing autistic kids out of their shells. And there's a cute penguin robot, Mel, that makes eye contact with people and nods when they talk.

See I thought maybe they were running some RG-6 cable into the autistic kids. And that would be flat wrong.
