Interesting cultural note: One of the most pressing concerns in Japanese society is that the population is declining and getting older. Due in part to both the children of the baby boom generation reaching old age around now and a shrinking birthrate.
They could just loosen their immigration policies specifically targeted toward bringing in young families.
See, with Japan, it's either let them fur'nurs in, or make robots...And so they are trying to make robots to take care of the old people.
If the problem is an anticipated lowered population and current low birthrate, how do robots help?
If the problem is an anticipated lowered population and current low birthrate, how do robots help?I read this article about robots doing menial labor and taking care of old people, like robo-nurse.
Like Roujin Z?
I don't know. Maybe the robots make up much of the workforce and the consumers buy robots? *shrug*
They just need to make more adorable babies or invite some breeders in.
And I've learned that every doctor ever sucks, and they could learn a thing or two from BlackJack.
One other thing of note: To get a driving license in Japan as a foreigner, you have to prove you've been driving for a period of months before coming to the country. Found that out on Planet Japan.
