Virtual Parents from the Department of Defense

The Department of Defense is discussing the use of virtual parents for kids with parents deployed overseas. The proposal, “Virtual Dialogue Application for Families of Deployed Service Members”, would have virtual versions of the parent interact with children even if the real parent was not available at the time. Yup, kids might think they’re real, but the computer will only be pretending to be the parent whether or not their real life parent was available for video conferencing or  not. A bit creepy, if you ask me.
