Robosapien

I have to get myself one of these:

In what industry knaves describe as “a giant leap for robotics”, a new personal entertainment robot, or intelligent entertainment humanoid, the Robosapien, has arrived.

And for those who do feel the need to be entertained by a small robot, the little fella, who is battery-operated and remote-controlled, can perform up to 67 pre-programmed functions – including picking things up, throwing, high-fiving, whistling and dancing.

He can be taught his own dance routine and, impressively, he also knows three karate moves, which is of course more than most actual humans.

But that’s not all. It seems that the little guy is full of surprises.

He even has 28 “secret” moves up his sleeve – which one would presumably discover after getting to know him a little bit better.

I wonder how he functions.

“He does have a digital brain, but it’s only about as smart as a calculator,” Mr Tilden said. “His real computation comes from an adaptive suspension design and resonant physics…”

Which means he probably won’t understand what that last sentence means.

Come to think of it, I am not sure I do either..
