'This is Us' creator stumbles into melodrama 'Life Itself'

(CNN)"This is Us" creator Dan Fogelman has inadvertently provided a stark lesson on key differences between TV and movies with "Life Itself," the new film that he wrote and directed. Featuring similar emotional beats, the movie suffers by cramming all that melodrama into a confined space, heightening the sense of manipulation to what feels like absurd levels."Life Itself" deals with many of the same themes as Fogelman's hit NBC series, including the interconnectedness of life and the potentially crippling grief associated with losing loved ones. The central point, however, hinges on the sheer unpredictability of it all, while wrapping that...

One Japanese researcher, however, has designed a robot that instills the opposite image of our future, particularly in the minds of the children who use them.

Instead, they are built to help young students study English vocabulary and serve as classroom dunces who commonly make mistakes -- mistakes that a helpful student can correct. Nao, a robot...
