- Robotic Pets -
Many people form significant relationships with pets, but factors such as economic status,
mobility, and health conditions may prevent people from owning pets. These people may benefit
from robotic pets. Amanda Lazar from the UW
and her colleagues conducted focus groups with older adults to find out their attitudes towards
robotic pets. These findings can inform designers of future robotic pets.
Monday Night Chat
The Seattle Robotics Society hosts a "Monday Night Chat"
each week. Official time is 7 - 9 p.m. Pacific Time, but people are often
around outside this timeframe as well. Details are on
the Contact Us page.
