Meet Grandma Lea, a 94-year-old who lives alone with her robot named Mr. Riley. Her robot assists her with daily chores, monitors and collects data on her health, and allows her to have face-to-face conversations with loved ones and her doctor. Grandma Lea says Mr. Riley is a reassuring presence in her life. What do you think? Do you see living with a robot in your future? You can view this video about Grandma Lea on YouTube.
