The Personal Robots research group at the MIT Media Lab is seeking people to participate in a study that explores how social robots could help people improve their emotional wellbeing. We're looking for someone who is:
- age 18+
- speaks English
- lives in the US
- has access to Wi-Fi
- doesn't have any visual/auditory impairment
to participate in our study.
If you choose to participate in our study, you will be asked to fill out short weekly surveys for 8 weeks and use the robot in your home for 4 weeks during the 8 week period.
For this study, we will use a no-contact delivery to ship the study device and will provide you a disinfecting kit and instruction manual. The study device will be returned at the end of the study, and we will provide a pre-paid return label.
If you are interested in participating, please fill out this sign-up form (https://forms.gle/sutcD77EeEuGTRRh8) and we will contact you for a follow-up.
You can also reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
