In this Monday, Feb. 28, 2011 photo, Dr Ben Robins, right, a research fellow at Hertfordshire University shows off two 'Kasper' robots that he hopes will help with autistic children, in Hatfield, England. Autistic children play with the robot for up to 10 minutes alongside a scientist who controls the robot with a remote control.   The robot, named Kaspar, is programmed to do things like smile, frown, laugh, blink and wave his arms. He has shaggy black hair, a baseball cap, a few wires protruding from his neck, and striped red socks. He was built by scientists at the University of Hertfordshire at a cost of about 1,300 pounds ($2,118). (AP Photo/Alastair Grant)
