The release of the new Family Nanny Robot proves that China doesn't plan on letting Japan completely take over the work of eliminating human jobs. Developed by Shenyang Siasun Robot & Automation Co. Ltd., the robot can essentially act as a temporary caretaker for children and the elderly with the ability to detect gas leaks, alert the fire or police authorities, as well as text the owner in certain situations.
Equipped with sensors that allow it to navigate the interior of any home, the robot only needs 2 hours of charging to operate for 8 hours. The company plans to introduce the robot to the commercial market for 10,000 yuan ($1,500) in the next five years.
