A robot masseuse named Emma is offering Singaporeans high-tech back rubs with a gigantic metal arm and warm silicone tips which its creators say perfectly mimic the human touch.For Sg$68 ($50), customers at the traditional Chinese medicine clinic get half an hour of robotic massage – on the back or other parts of the body that are aching – five minutes of massage by a human therapist and around 20 minutes of acupuncture."But for Emma, once I say go, then she goes to work".She said the massage robot is also useful in plugging a labor shortage, as it can be difficult to find good therapists in Singapore.
