Games, sensors and robots are among the tools beginning to come to market to help aging people live in their homes as long as possible.

In December, 2003, BusinessWeek Magazine interviewed Joseph Engelberger, the robotics pioneer. The article was entitled “How Robots Lost Their Way.” Included in the article was a plea for money to build an eldercare robot which Engelberger thought could be built with then-current technologies, rented for $600 per month, operated at a cost of $1.25 per hour (compared to healthcare homeworkers who cost around $15 per hour) and developed at a cost of less than $700,000.
