Dog is mans best friend. Many people have dogs and take care of them like a child. But many have a dog but gradually get tired of the the responsibility and care which is required. In fact, many dog lovers do not keep a dog because of the sheer work and the expenses involved.
Robot pets are the new alternative.Though it seems ridiculous that people would consider a electronic device a pet, but it has been proved scientifically that gradually owners do get attached to their robot pets. If a robot pet malfunctions the owners refuse to have a replacement but want the original one to be repaired.
Similarly children start relating and loving a robot pet. We all know children get attached to normal toys, which we all have experienced ourselves. No wonder they fall in love with a toy which responds to a child,obeys its commands and even displays emotions.
Toys like Cayla the Doll answers a childs questions, shares photos and plays games with them. Similarly Zoomer the Dog can follow around its owner and display emotions with sound and changing color of its eyes.
As we move in to the future robotic technology will get even more sharper. Prof Stephen Hawking has warned that the rapid pace of this technology is a threat to mankind.
Let us get prepared for this future. With a faithful robot pet beside us!
