Zyrobotics’ Founder Introduces a Socially Interactive Robot for Children with Special Needs

To help children with regaining muscle movement and for rehabilitation, Dr. Howard from Georgia Tech discusses how her team developed a socially interactive humanoid robot for helping with physical therapy. While playing a game such as Angry Birds, children are able to teach the robot by moving their finger across the tablet. After the child’s turn, the robot plays by mimicking the child’s movements. Examples of social interaction include the robot displaying disappointment if it loses, or encouragement when the child wins. For the full article, see GeorgiaTech, TechCrunch
