Who hasn’t heard or seen the tale of Pinocchio? That tale may be coming to a reality. No, not the part where every time you lie, your nose gets bigger but how Pinocchio was built to fill that need and gap for a son. People are resorting to filling that gap left by a loved one, by replacing them with robots.
There is a website called RobotShop that allows you to pretty much build a robot the way that you want it, and design it for what you need it do. They aren’t that expensive either. Much cheaper than a child, I’d say.
