Robotic Therapy Animals? Yup!

Hasbro has recently entered the area of products for Senior Citizens with their Joy for all Companion Pets.  

For $99, this electronic companion pet cat serves as a therapy device.  It realistically responds to touch with purring and other motions using input from motion and light sensors.  So far the response has been great and users are commenting on how realistic the experience can be.

With ever increasing needs for demand and care of this growing demographic, there is a great opportunity for design to make living better.
