parobabysealbot1 Sure, it was “designed to help sick and elderly people relax and heal through Animal-Assisted therapy,” but these “therapeutic” baby seal robots are devious and prompt some ethical questions. A.) Is “Animal-Assisted therapy” still effective when using stuffed animals? B.) Do the patients have to be so “sick and elderly” that they think it’s the real thing? C.)

Don’t be fooled by the puppy dog eyes, this is no cuddly seal, it’s a Trojan horse of Skynet proportions. You’ve been warned! |Inhabitots|
