Nao interactive robot

There is no better time than Nao to get a robot, eh? Pardon the pun, but the humanoid Nao that was paraded at the 2009 International Robot Exhibition (iREX 2009) packs in a couple of cameras to help him see, where he boasts linguistic abilities of English and French while being fully capable of reacting to touch. Apart from that, Nao can also surf the Web and interact with other Naos. Equipped with an accelerometer and gyrometer to maintain his balance, he also has a couple of pairs of ultra-sound senders/receivers located on his torso that provides feedback on several echoes in order to prevent Nao from running into any obstacles. There is still no word on pricing, but Nao should be making his debut pretty soon.
