Nao robot offers Kinect control

Those who have a penchant for the world of robotics will be pleased to know that the Nao robot (from the lovely French, where you can tell by its aesthetics) might be in its prototype stage, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t going to roll out in the future since creator Aldebaran intends to release the first batch of Nao robots within two to three years – the downside? That is the earliest time period specified. Of course, what makes the Nao more interesting apart from it being a cool looking robot is the fact that there is also a prototype charging station for it as well as a hacked version from Aldebaran themselves that can be controlled through Microsoft’s Kinect.
