Yes, I'm with you there Sam, but an elderly population like Japan in the
coming decades, assuming workers are not imported, these things must be done
remotely, then automated.
Folding paper is just one example...

Perhaps people in the hackerspace or fab lab community would present
something like this since they have the ability to pool more resources.

I'm rather disappointed that no one thus far finds such a demonstration all
that important. We need robotics to do tasks people would rather not do to
keep essential functions so it is practical to apply peer production
universally, where it is possible to manage all affairs asynchronously.
