   (http://aitopics.org/sites/default/files/styles/thumbnail/public/representative_images/304257.jpg?itok=RoqqC84v)                 Robot carers will be the next big thing coming out of Japan, if Toyota, Honda and other firms ploughing money into robo-helpers are to be believed. From robotic toys that simulate pets for companionship, to big mechanical bears that can physically carry you between beds and wheelchairs - all with a friendly smile - the robots aren't only coming to take your jobs, but to take care of older people too.
