Hot for teacher … robot

japan creep teach

Saya the fem-bot has not had very much job satisfaction. First she was set up as a receptionist in 2006 and now looking at her face, Saya seems much happier as a robo-teacher at a demonstration primary school in Tokyo.
Hell, they even gave her a new light beige version of the same yellow suit that she has been wearing for the past five years.saya-faces — May 8, 2009
Kudan Elementary School children touch the cheek of Japan’s robot teacher Saya, who gave a special class in Tokyo. The remotely controlled Saya, developed by Tokyo University of Science professor Hiroshi Kobayashi, can express six basic emotions — surprise, fear, disgust, anger, happiness, sadness…..

    Robot teacher Saya … developed by Tokyo University of Science professor Hiroshi Kobayashi… Saya, remote-controlled by a human watching the interaction through cameras, called out children’s names, casted them preprogrammed phrases and questions as:
    what sort of robots would you like to be with?

  2. Dude. I just know you want to grab one of Robo-sensei’s titties like the boy in the photo. :-p

  3. wow, the idea of a robot teaching our children creeps me out so bad.Kids need social interaction with not just other kids but HUMANS and adults. This is disgusting! Thank the Lord that I don’t live in that hellhole!

  4. Development of Anal Position Detecting System for New-Toilet System | 2013/dec/06
    Koshi Tokoro, Keisuke Fujihira, and Hiroshi Kobayashi Department of Mechanical Engineering, Tokyo University of Science, Tokyo, Japan], paper presented at the 2013 Seventh International Conference on Sensing Technology, December 3 – 5, 2013, at Massey University in Wellington, New Zealand. The authors summarize…

    “Japan entered a super-aged society, and nursing care is a serious social problem. Especially, an excretion care causes physical and mental stress to both caregivers and recipients. In this study, we have been developing a new-toilet system for reducing the stress of the excretion care. The new-toilet system can capture feces and prevent odor dispersion by adhering tightly to buttocks. For attaching the device to buttocks, it is necessary to know the position of the anus. It is preferable that the device automatically moves to the anal position and adhere to the buttocks without caregiver’s help. Therefore we developed a sensing system of the anal position using the infrared camera. This paper describes the position detecting system and its estimation.”

    …Their laboratory, the Koba Lab, is a hothouse of ideas and development. Among their projects: muscle suits, an artificial receptionist system, a swallowing robot, a milking machine… also once made a robot substitute elementary school teacher, Sayasaya-teacher-bot
