When I saw there was a robot to help friends keep in touch and be less lonely, I was pretty pumped.
Then.... I watched the video.
This "robot" watches your friends so that you know when they're waking up, doing laundry, cooking, or a number of other things. They say it's so you feel like you have a roommate or you know when it's safe to text them back.. but hell nah.
This will be used for intrusive significant others to make sure you're doing what you say you are. Orrr parents. this will not be used for good.
