Apparently not:

In Pittsburgh, “Nursebot” (a robot which took on male and female personalities of Earl and Pearl depending on the gender of the voice used at the time) was tried out with elderly patients. Despite the stereotype of older people being technology phobic, the patients accepted the robots.

NOOOO!!! Don’t do it! It’s a trap!!!

    My verymost favorite from the “Old Glory” ad? The tag at the end:

    “Persons denying the existence of Robots may be Robots themselves.”
