Researchers have mainstreamed a Sony Qrio robot in a California nursery school. The robot, which is assisted at all times by an assistant, dances with the children but rarely drinks juice or has to go to the potty. I think the best, and most telling, quote follows:

"The children think of Qrio as a feeble younger brother."

Just wait until things aren't so feeble anymore. Then you'll know what John Connor was talking about kids.
