About it reports the publication Digital Trends.
The robot looks and behaves like a real Labrador. It is intended for older people with dementia, as well as those who feel lonely. The robot must help them cope with stress and anxiety.
In response to stroking the robed baby moves his head and wags his tail. He is also able to yelp in response to voice commands.
As the founder and CEO of Tombot Tom Stevens, many people are unable to care for this dog for health reasons. Alternatively, a similar young boy can be used for emotional support.
"We aim to fill the emotional emptiness of those people who cannot take care of a real animal," said Stevens.
He thought about creating a similar robot after his mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2011.
"During the many difficult days that we had shortly after the diagnosis was clarified, the worst thing was that I had to remove her dog," said Stevens.
Tombot recently launched a Kickstarter fundraiser. At the moment, the company has already collected more than 40 thousand dollars with a target of 20 thousand.
Prices for robots start at $ 299. The release of the device to the market is scheduled for August 2020.
