CBSN On Assignment: @AdamYamaguchi Visits Japan to Talk Robots, Population Decline, and the Future-Human Condition | @hiroshiishiguro @CBSNews #robots

In a segment from On Assignment by CBSN Adam Yamaguchi visits Japan to report on how robots are becoming both a practical and perhaps emotional replacement for humans in a country with a rapidly declining population (and therefore fewer people to staff jobs, work at hotels, fewer kids to teach in schools, and other dilemmas associated broadly with a country’s population and economy). The nearly 12-minute segment includes conversation with Hiroshi Ishiguro, other roboticists, doctors, and someone who lives with a humanoid robot named Pepper (first image below).

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
