Is it time to consider this yet?

Would it be a good idea to buy one of these Toyota robots so it could take care of me in my old age? DW seems to like the idea.....

Makers of robots see big potential for their use in Japan, where the number of elderly people is rapidly growing, causing labour shortages in a country that strictly controls immigration. Japanese are famed for their longevity of life, with more than 30,000 people aged at least 100 years old, a trend attributed to a healthy cuisine and active lifestyle.
Toyota's new robot can play the violin, help the aged

I'd hold off for this model, but you'd have some 'splaining to do with DW.
