Orazio il Robot per l'Autismo (ORA!)

Orazio is the human name assigned by Marco Picarella of Biosphaera to the robot Ohbot.
It is equipped with motors to move the head or parts of it and with sensors. It can speak and recognize specific words. It is programmed with a block language.
Orazio is been using in an ongoing experiment aiming to make it a tool for teaching and exercising the social skills of kids with autism spectrum disorder.
Orazio can also be an element of motivation for autistic kids as well as a mediator between them and neurotypical people (family members, therapists, friends).
The ease of programming makes Orazio customizable according to the specificities of the autistic subject.
