Last Moment Robot Comforts Dying Humans

Posted on June 9, 2012

Last Moment Robot is part of Last Moment Hospital, an interactive installation created by Dan Chen. The robot comforts dying humans with its padded caressing arm. The robot also shares kind words with the dying human.

The robot says, "Hello Susie, I am the last moment robot. I am here to help you and guide you through your last moment on Earth. I am sorry that your family and friends can't be with you right now, but don't be afraid. I am here to comfort you. You are not alone, you are with me. Your family and friends love you very much, they will remember you after you are gone."

After the human dies the robot then announces the time of death. Take a look:
