An NYU student conducted an art experiment involving a tiny robot to see how people would react. You can read about it here:
This experiment proves that people will help you…if you are adorable. Let’s face it, we see people who need help on the street all the time, but do we help them? NO.
Did you notice that they weren’t adorable? Yeeaaahhh, you’re right, they weren‘t adorable. They smelled bad and were crabby too.
I’m not surprised college kids helped the little fella out. After all, they’re used to technology and love it. They embrace it. But send that robot to a nursing home and you’ll see a different if not deranged reaction.
It’s common knowledge that the elderly think robots are out to get them, right?
