Robotic remedy pets get a starring function in Lightyear and in actual Life


Roboticists are engaged on real-world variations of Sox, a robotic companion in Lightyear, to play therapeutic roles.

Take a look at how Sox compares to actual world robotic cats (and different pet companions) in my Science Robotics article. Sox really checks off 4 of the necessities for an acceptable remedy companion robotic given in a 2021 paper by Koh, Ang, and Casey. The primary robotic cat NeCoRo has been unflatteringly described as “It’s like your deceased pet, that you just had stuffed at a reduction taxidermist, got here again to life since you learn a passage from that dusty previous ebook you discovered within the attic.” You possibly can see simply how creepy it strikes and acts right here.

Sox is a superb place to begin to study extra about robotic design, see the subjects web page on Robotic Design for extra scifi and naturally my books to study extra.
