end of life care-bot.

I don't quite know how to feel about this...

A padded caressing arm and a mechanical recorded voice
designed to guide and comfort dying patients with scripted message.

End of Life Care Machine

I'm pretty sure I'd rather have the people I love around me
rather than a metal arm telling me I'm going to die 
& massage my life away (literally)

But I guess the whole idea is that this robot is able to reenact human social behaviors...
Still, the whole notion is a little too cold and morbid for my liking...
