Kaspar The Robot for ASD kids.

Came across this article today while reading some online news sites. Not sure if others are familiar already with this robot but it seems very promising.


  1. Yeah I saw an article on that not long ago. Pretty amazing.
    Then I was listening to this woman on the radio yesterday.
    As well as social networking etc, she talks about robot carers/orderlies/nurses (it wasn't clear but I think she was saying they are already in use in, surprise surprise, Japan). I thought it was interesting that the human deficiencies she was decrying are somehow helpful to children with autism.

  2. Yes it is interesting. Something about these Kaspars seems to be very non threatening. They look creepy to me.
