Awesome... but how much?

The RI-MAN is a seeing, hearing and smelling robot that can carry human beings and is aimed at helping care for the country's growing number of elderly.

This is great and all, but as you can see in the post below, human labor is probably cheaper. Not that you could hire a doula to care for the elderly, but you could easily find a Chinese lady who would cook, clean and provide medical care for your aging and debilitating loved one in exchange for a few dollars and unlimited access to Chinese soap operas.
