Participate in the Our Social Robot Study!

Personal Robots Group

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 ( and we will contact you for a follow-up. 

You can also reach us at if you have any questions.
