People cost too much. The robot works for free and doesn't require money, or medical benefits. The robot doesn't require bathroom breaks, meals or coffee breaks, and the robot won't join the union and strike.

I've saw the Japanese reporter/greeter and Einstein heads at WiredFest a few years ago... it really is disturbing. Something just isn't right.

OK JAPAN, WE GET IT!! YOU GUYS ARE GOOD AT MAKING ROBOTS!!

To me that thing is a joke though:

I forget the exact wording, but the robot is said to be "extremely life like"? Not at all. That thing is about as life like as a Tomagotchi.
It can 'mimic' several emotions, including scolding?
I find it very hard for kids to actually take that thing seriously.
It was first used as a receptionist.
Great, first we have to deal with automated answering services when we call a support line, now we have to deal with automated secretaries as well?

If either of you watched the video, it specifically said it's not meant to replace teachers.
