The global population of the elderly is growing fast. Japan is dealing with this problem in its own way. Let’s read more about robots for senior citizens in Japan. I think it’s just weird but true.
Robots in the Czech Republic?
A new report reveals the global population of older people is growing very fast. By 2040, about 14 percent of the world’s population will be retired. Researchers say the number of old people will soon outnumber the young for the first time in history. This will have an impact on our societies, economy, and the way we live. An older population will push up pension and healthcare costs.
Japan is already dealing with the problems of an aging population.
Again by 2040, experts say one percent of the Japanese population will
be over 100 years old. To solve social and economic problems,
engineers are developing robots to feed and care for old people.
There are now robot companions on sale to keep old people company.
