Aldebaran Robotics’ latest version of their Nao robot made an impact at the Humanoids 2010 conference in Atlanta, where Nao’s body has been re-engineered to look a whole lot more attractive and robust. It features longer curved arms that just give the bot more space for it to pick stuff up and throw, preferably not at you for forgetting to oil its joints. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that a new motion engine has been installed into the Nao, making it move a whole lot more fluidly, making it move more like a human than ever before. Nao’s also been given a new head that holds an upgraded brain, where it is capable of recognizing speech and images, performing a certain degree of facial recognition as well as reading text.
