Will Robots be Used to Help Children with Emotional Problems?

Thanks to the microchip, brightly colored egonomically rounded robots are helping the mental health professional reach out to children who battle with mental illness.

Similar to programs that rely on animals such as dolphins and dogs, the robot invented by Robert Doornick research explains that patients are less threatened by a robot.

SICO, is a custom-built robot that cost $500,000 to build. SICO visits hospitals and clinics arund the United States each year. The children connect SICO feeling unafraid to hug, kiss or even dance with the robot. Children treat the machine as if it were a real person.

Doornick uses a tiny microphone hidden in the robots hand which allows him to use his voice to speak through the machine. Through this device Doornick is also able to control the robots movement.

This Is An Amazing Book, I Enjoy Reading About The Ongoing Changes I n The Microchip World

Author Rick Smolan, Introduces the World to the Fundamental Use Behind the Microchip.

Rick Smolan, author of the best-selling Day in the Life Series, teamed up with co-author Jennifer Erwitt, to help create this groundbreaking classical visual on how the microchip is enhancing our future. 100 of the world's most sought after photojournalists around the world ventured on a 24-hour shoot to capture the remarkable stories of how the microchip has successful changed our future.

Taking glimpse of just how significant the microchip has become will enlightened through the some of the visual aspects captured by various photographers gives the world an exciting concept on involving the impact behind the microchip.

In Tokyo, Japan Antonio Pagnotta, visits the Toto toilet showrrom. Taking a load off on the NeoRest ExII, high-tech toilet will cost a bathroom specialist $3,500. The NeoRest features a microprocessor-controlled seat warmers, automatic lid openers air deodorizers, water sprays and blow-dryers. It is reported that engineers are currently working on a model that will be able to analyze urine to indicate the blood-sugar levels in diabetics these impressive toilets will have the ability to to automatically send a daily report, by modem, to the owners doctor.

Shock waves created by an underwater spark between two electrodes aim to shatter the stone in a treatment which last for 30 minutes.

This invention was discovered by German aerospace engineers who developed a way to create a machine which uses the microchip to help ease the pain of having to pass a Kidney stone without irritating the bone or surrounding muscle.

The Microchip Leaves No Man Behind or Animal.

By the use of a microchip farmers are able to use the same technology used by obstetricians to check the health of the fetus. Livestock managers use a similar ultrasound system in the price range of $10,000 on their cattle, and sheep to detect healthiest animals for breeding purposes.

Technology does not stop there when it comes to farming. Poultry processing seen tested by Chris Jonson at Atlanta's Georgia Tech Research Institute test out ways to view data on the screen mounted on his forehead. Johnson wears a computer the size of a cassette tape recorder around his belt. This technology is intended to help decrease paperwork on the factory floor.

Farmers are also using new service through satellite news service which transmits real-time weather reports through the Transmission Network known as (DTN) Processing the latest reports to futuristic farmers.

Created in 1984 by Ichiro Dato of Waseda University WABOT-2 reads sheet music and plays simple tunes on an electric organ.

Robots will soon go on to perform a variety of task underwater and in outer space.Robots will also perform basic task such as housework and helping to aid the elderly.

The microchip has touched the film industry as well, Director, American film producer, screenwriter, and entrepreneur George Lucas utilized the art of the microchip through digital effects.

Theme parks such as Universal Studio uses the fully automated dinosaur roar and other special techniques were crated through robotics engineers to create the Jurassic Park Attraction.

It is said that no invention in history has so quickly spread throughout the world or so vastly touched lives in such a profound way as the microchip. In 1988 15 billion microchips of various kinds were in use. The amazing use of the miniature silicon chips is an endless sea of discovery.

      Hi Denise! I know you have a great understanding in the area concerning emotional health. Your hands on training and studies involving this subject is insightful. By using robots to communicate with children that suffer from mental illness can help to provide a safe environment.

      It is amazing what can be done with technology! Having robots work with children having emotional issues takes the safety hazard away. When humans work with children having emotional issues, humans can be physically harmed. Removing the human element, the child knows that retaliation is not an option, and compliance increases.
