Cute robots as school nurses

I think it's nice that they're using these cute robots for regularly checking the health of children every day at school. Check-ups can sometimes be scary for children so I imagine having a cute robot do your check-up instead of a stranger in a white laboratory or uniform can be more comforting. Or at least less intimidating.

It's kinda like the old robot dog from Japan that was used for promotions. Cuteness sells!

This is how robots should be used even now as we're starting to rely more and more on them for a lot of things: they're supposed to help us with our daily tasks and to improve our lives, not take away things from us like our jobs.
