Cancel the Babysitter

You will not believe this - or maybe you've already seen it. The manufacturer of Hello Kitty is coming out with a robot that's $6,299.00 (I'm not kidding!) that has face and voice recognition. There aren't a lot of specifics yet, but it has little motion sensors so it can move it's robotic arms, head and legs and can chat with a child in three different personality modes: as a close friend, with the family and as a guessing game.



But, the creme de la creme....the maker of the robot has described it as, "This is a perfect robot for whoever does not have a lot time to stay with their child. Hello Kitty Robot can stay with your child to keep them from being lonely."


Ummm....instead of hello kitty it should be hello creepy.

There is something seriously wrong with: A)the price, did you say six thousand and change??? B)the idea of marketing for people who don't want to spend time with their child! I don't want to know who would buy this...
