Meet Milo, the robot that teaches emotions and social interactions to kids with autism. Milo’s main objective is to help autistic kids engage in learning and retain what they learned in order to engage in the real world.
The good people of RoboKind have created a robot that can walk, talk, express emotion and sense how you’re feeling, but also can listen, and give feed back in not only English, but also a variety of languages and voices. With Milo help transform autistic kids world from mystery to wonder and excitement.
But why stop at just helping autistic kids, Milo is also capable of helping kids in the classroom as their personal assistant; all under the supervision of the teacher. The advantage to individual avatars will help guide kids to learn and receive personal attention from Milo who is well equipped with emotional intelligence, able to detect what a student is feeling; rather then barraging one teacher with 30 students with different questions.
Milo doesn’t stop there though; he’s also great with seniors! Milo engages senior citizens with mental and physical activities. Milo helps guide seniors through an array of activities ranging from brain games and exercises to singing and reading. Robots4Seniors is a great addition to incorporate to current therapies and programs.
With Milo a world of opportunity opens up to people who are in need of it. Incorporating this technology in our schools and homes can be a great help in raising our kids to be great adults. Also, several insurance companies have even added in recouping funds for Milo because of its positive influence in the education of kids with autism. Milo is a great addition to the world and will bring a precedent in how kids are educated.
