Therabot

Therabot

Mississippi State University associate professor of computer science and engineering Cindy Bethel and her team of student researchers are melding the simple care and benefits of a plush toy with the proven success of animal therapy. Their robotic beagle puppy, known as Therabot, gathers information and data that can lead to healing for an abused child or someone suffering from post-traumatic stress.
