When I enter a business, I want to be greeted by and interface with a human being, not so cheap robot that the business uses to increase its profits. Technology can improve some things in life, but we need to be very selective about what we chose to use. Personally, I find television useless, and haven't owned one - or a car mobile phone in over 12 years. Want more retail customers? Dump the robots; hire and train more people.

People spend that much on frivolous entertainment, but in what way is this program "sustainable"? It relies on customers from the unsustainable and collapsing social and economic model we live in. Perhaps as we collapse further, people will see the need to reassess their life paradigms in which case this experience could be most useful - if there are people who can still afford it at that point.
