Hannah do you know how old the Giraff video is? Giraff the company has had some problems and I am wondering if they are still active. Rob might know.

Our model is a subscription model, so for a community application we're trying to work out what is would be. But I can say that for individual use we're targeting £50-£60 per month

Sofia, very interesting. Was the effect on residents soon after introduction? Did the effect last for some time, or was it possibly a novelty effect?

We conducted the study with the cat robot for 9 months and the interest and affection actually improved over time. So we did not see any novelty effect. The general interest was immediate after introduction and over time it increased in some individuals.
