Kids and Robots

Or sending the Robot to preschool
Wired has an article on research to make robots feel more human, or at least more alive. ("Five is alive.")
"As I was testing it, I kept moving, and this robot kept looking at me, and his eyes moved in a particular way, and I got close, and this robot kept looking at me. And then it hugged me. And it completely got me." Movellan was shocked by the strength of his own response. "I said, 'What's happening here? I know this thing is dead. I mean, it's not alive. But I would swear that this thing is alive.'"
