Babyloid – the therapeutic baby robot

As the top robot nation in the world, Japan does have to have every kind of robot available on the market. Therefore, a baby robot that can have an emotional effect on the user is just a little strange.

The Babyloid is a welfare robot that looks like an infant (if robots had infants), and has a movable mouth, arms, and eyelids. It weighs in at 2.2kg, which about 5 pounds, and measures 44cm in length. It can simulate some emotions such as being upset and has the ability to cry using lights on it�s face. Thankfully there�s no diaper to change or anything, but it�s definitely going to get a response from anyone who loves babies or has that �momdar�. (Mother radar for crying children) Prototypes are currently being used in nursing homes as a trial basis, but might be available for commercial release someday. Though they may be a little weird, they are still kind of cute.
