Robot comforts elderly, snores

Japanese researchers have developed a cuddly teddybear robot designed to comfort the elderly and delight children by reading facial expressions and actions and responding to them.
The fluffy invention by Fujitsu is still being worked on, but the electronics giant rolled out the as-yet-unnamed prototype for an early glimpse at an exhibition near Tokyo this week.
A camera in the nose of the bear can detect human faces and actions, such as waving of hands, while sensors inside its head and limbs can detect human touches and caresses.
