In Japan.

Thanks to Japanese law, the people have no choice but to submit to the inevitable robot invasion (to say nothing of the imminent zombie apocalypse; maybe the robots will protect them).

As far as using robots for companionship goes, they’ve got a big problem right now; the uncanny valley.  Some of the robots in the slideshow are downright horrifying.  If I were an aging Japanese retiree, I wouldn’t want my only friend to be a robot that looks like it hungers for the souls of humans (so that it can finally be a real boy!).
