Discussion Summary

Explorers at Eskaton Village, Carmichael meet an Ohmni Labs robot, and have a variety of initial responses from surprise to nervous laughter. The device is on loan from the manufacturer, which has a goal of helping older adults. Several likely uses emerge in the course of discussion, especially since it is operated remotely by someone who would summon assistance when indicated. 

Explorers recognize embedded technologies already in use and see the natural leap to visiting by robot.
