        Developing Friendlier Robots

        Learn about advances in making socially interactive robots in this video from NOVA scienceNOW: "What's the Next Big Thing?" Robots are being developed for a variety of everyday tasks, such as delivering snacks and caring for the elderly. Roboticists describe how creating a kinder, gentler robot—one that acts more like a human than a machine—will help people become more comfortable and more likely to incorporate the robot into their lives.
