I have Aspergers Syndrome and can tell you the biggest emotion I feel is the "leave me the fuck alone!" one, which I suspect the majority of people who have an Autism spectrum also feel.
It's not that we hate people it's that we can only stand to be around them (be 'social') for a much shorter amount of time than the average person before we get stressed because most of the time we don't know what other people are feeling unless they specifically tell us, I can happily spend most of my days not having face-to-face social interaction with other people (thumbs up for self-service supermarket tills).
Interacting through the internet has been a very good thing for me because it allows me to hold conversations without having to be face-to-face and thinking-on-the-fly, I can spend a bit of time composing an email/forum posting, go back and re-edit what I've written before pressing the Send button which you can't do in a face-to-face or phone conversation.
Interactive robots, the right robots could have a big impact on helping Autism spectrum people to become more interested of the world outside their own mind - just don't make them too human looking, ok?
