Everyone's talking about the smart bot, Leka that was rolled out earlier this year to help kids with autism.

"My son immediately connected with this robot," one parent said. "With this ball, that was running
around and coming back to him and responding to his call."

Leka comes equipped with lights, sounds, sensors, and vibrations to keep kids motivated and engaged. For those who don't speak Swedish, the word "Leka" means to play and heal.

Since launching earlier in the year, she's already helped over one hundred patients around the world.

"This could be a great great tool for therapists," another parent explained. "Keep them engaged, and use it to connect and teach them."

We can't speak for all robots, but this one was created for good!
