Robot Babies for School Projects
The robot babies that teachers give to teenagers for school projects, lets them experience a taste of motherhood. It just shows teenagers how babies are unpredictable and will cry when you least expect it. The dolls are installed with sensitive data to show whether or not the baby was cared for or not. It will show how many feedings were missed, how long the doll cried and if there was any shaken involved. These dolls are not meant to replace real babies. The purpose is to show teenagers how to care for a child and learn why they are crying. I think it is a good idea in training the teenagers but they need to know that these babies are just dolls and nowhere close to the real needs of a real baby.
