From robo-toys to mechanical bears: your future carers may be robots
3 December 2015, 12:00 am

                    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.
