The robotic 5 year plan

Japan’s got a lot of old people. They also have a lot of robots. Hmmm…

So now the government of the chrysanthemum kingdom has announced that care for the elderly will be under robotic control within 5 years. In that time a massive influx of investment will be spent on entraining robots to bathe, clip and interact with the elderly, while making sure the robots don’t get any crazy ideas for a hostile takeover. Isn’t that how it starts? I remember something like this at Epcot in the “world of tomorrow” ride.
