| Aldebaran's Nao design stands 21.6 inches tall, and implements 23 degrees
| of freedom, including gripping hands. It runs Linux and comes with PC
| software that enables users to control their android remotely, via WiFi.
| The software will also enable users to program their android's
| behavior, emotional expressions, speech synthesizer, and other
| capabilities, or collect data from its onboard video camera and
| other sensors, Aldebaran says.
| Interestingly, one of the videos shows several lights on the Nao
| design cycling through various colors. This suggests that the
| robot could use various light colors to express its emotions,
| similar to the Violet Dal emotional lamp, another intriguing
| Linux-based device of French origination.
