Full size robo-nurses could be introduced into EU countries with the next 10 years if tests in Japan (where else) are a success. They can carry things, give timely reminders and distribute medicines and even take temperatures!!!

Robo Nurses will also be able to tackle some of the tasks that staff hate such as cleaning up spills and locating patients !!

Sensors and voice/face recognition will ensure that they never get in the way or knock things over!!

The real reasons we buy gadgets

We spend billions of pounds a year on gadgets but why? Here are the real reasons we buy gadgets…

MP3 player – It’s easier to ignore talkative weirdoes on the train or bus, you dont even need to switch it on-just have the earplugs in.

Satnav – Men can’t ask for directions.

Desktop/USB Toys – Work is boring.

Video Phones – It’s so easy to lie by text.

Watches and Clocks (that look like things and make funny noises) – Getting up in the morning sucks and so does turning up on time.

Kitchen Gadgets – Eating good, cooking boring.

Hair Straighteners – Because everyone else does it.

Handfree Phone Kits – While it is a sign of madness, talking to yourself looks cool, and it stops people asking for spare change.

Virtual Pets – Real animals spend half their time asleep and the other making a mess.

Portable games consoles – Hmmmm…pass. Have you seen your face when you are playing computer games?

Top 10 real reasons we buy gadgets, because we should admit them to ourselves at least (and then deny them to everyone else!!) We are interested in technology and not being cool!!!?

There are so many real reasons we buy gadgets, everyone will have their own ones, please leave a comment should you have any better ones.
