NAO Robot Helps Autistic Child
Just recently an inspiring story transpired about a young girl named Eden and an educational humanoid robot named Kaspar. Eden lives in Stevenage, England where she is afraid to be touched by others. Eden is autistic. Once a week the NAO robot is brought into Eden’s preschool for about ten minutes where, when touched, the robot can produce human characteristics. After spending time with Kaspar, Eden now hugs everyone.
