Mr. Roboto

Check out this Quicktime footage of a cool new robot from Sony that was posted on Boingboing, I guess it's some new Aibo-type thing. Sure looks cool, though. I'm still waiting on the robot that will bring me a beer and tidy up around the house like Rosie from The Jetsons...sigh. Guess that'll be awhile.

Meantime, here's some more info about this singing, dancing robot, the SDR-4X, which can recognize up to ten human faces and can even recognize emotions from facial features. There are still some issues the engineers are going to have to work on, but it looks like it may be time to take the old Aibo to the robotic dog pound to be put to sleep.
