Conversation with robot is a touching tale

People who were touched by a humanoid robot while conversing with it reported an improved emotional state and were more likely to comply with the robot, a small study indicates. In response to the robot’s touch, most participants smiled and laughed. None pulled away. Those who were touched were more likely than those not touched to go along with the robot urging that they show interest in a particular academic course discussed, reports Tech Xplore.
