Robots can do many things humans can do, often better. They mix cocktails, stand in for security guards and dispose of bombs. One thing we’re sure they can never do better: care for our kids.

They can’t snuggle, kiss boo-boos or exhibit unconditional love, not like a mom or dad or child care worker can. But that didn’t stop the makers of iPal from creating a creepy nanny robot that they’re billing as a babysitter. It’s a 3-foot-tall talking bot, complete with a surveillance cam, a touch screen tablet and tons of apps, you know, to keep your kid occupied and happy when you can’t.
