Just in case anything goes wrong with the robot, only the children will get emotionally scarred and no one of any real importance. We all know it is just biding its time, pretending to be weak, when in reality, it has been self-aware and is plotting the corruption of the children and the downfall of human civilization.

“The children think of Qrio as a feeble younger brother,” researcher Fumihide Tanaka said.

Now there's a quote that's going to sell this whole Qrio PR stunt.

This makes me so happy.

Why isn't this a bigger news story? And how can I disguise myself as a pre-school student to play with this robot?

EDIT: Videos!
