Megan (no last name given) is enacting the two-handed sign for hiding that copies the robot, Kaspar, seen in the background.
Kaspar the robot shows the “happy” stance of two open arms to Eden Sawczenko, who is taking part in a research project in Hatfield, England. Eden attends a nursery for autistic children in Stevenage, north of London, where researchers bring in a human-looking, child-sized robot once a week for a supervised session.
Ronnie Arloff reacts to Kaspar the robot as he takes part in a research project in Hatfield, England. Autistic children play with the robot for up to 10 minutes alongside a scientist who controls the robot with a remote control.
