Singapore Empathetic Bear in a Nursing Home

This is not the first robot that is being introduced to elderly but it’s making an impact in Singapore. Paro, a japanese seal robot, has been named the “World’s Most Therapeutic Robot”. The bear is able to recognise emotion from the interaction. The bear has become a companion to the many elderly living in Singapore’s Villa Francis Home for the Aged. It’s good to see the smiles on the faces of the people interacting with the bear.
