Top 10 Robots Selected for Robot Award 2006



The Robot Award 2006 has been handed out, and while we’re soberly impressed by My Spoon, the meal assistance robot, and the Squid-fishing machine, it’s hard not to be distracted by the Paro, which is a baby seal robot that “can serve as a pet alternative for general households, and research has shown that Paro has therapeutic effects on patients.” Expect hordes of screaming schoolgirls (and others screaming like schoolgirls) to demand Paros of their very own any moment now.
