Robotic Chaplain Comforts the Dying
Robots are increasingly active in human medical care, from stabbing us with knives, to rescuing us from scene of the stabbing, to handling triage, drawing blood and providing nursing care at the hospital
But before they turn us into consumable biomass, the robots will lovingly say goodbye to us. The Last Moment Robot, designed by Dan Chen, is a chaplain that gently strokes and says soothing words to a human on his deathbed. Because it cares.
