Before You Die – The Last Moment Robot?

We want to be near our family on our death bed, to see them for the last time before we leave this world. But for those who do not have friends and family in the vicinity, this might be a good alternative, a robot who comforts you while you lie there.

This last moment robot strokes your arm and utters supposedly calming statements to you once it detects that you are about to pass away.

The actual set-up is an art installation by Dan Chen, with the  increasing number of elderly living alone in their later years, this idea might not be funny at all. You can see the Last Moment Robot in action in the video below.

This is what the robot says to you.

Hi Susie, I am the last moment robot.
I am here to help you and guide you through your last moment on earth.
i am sorry that (pause) your family and friends can’t be with you right now, but don’t be afraid. I am here to comfort you. (pause)
you are not alone, you are with me. (pause)
Your family and friends love you very much, they will remember you after you are  gone.  (pause)
