(London Daily Mail) Imagine for a moment you are lying in a sterile hospital bed, in the last few quiet moments of your life, taking your final breaths.

A smooth white robot starts gently rubbing your arm with a swing-saw motion and then, with a metallic voice, says: ‘I am the Last Moment Robot. I am here to help you and guide you through your last moment on Earth.

‘I am sorry that your family and friends can’t be with you right now, but don’t be afraid. I am here to comfort you. You are not alone, you are with me. Your family and friends love you very much, they will remember you after you are gone.’
