Linux robot promises to "see you soon"

| 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.

A link also mentions hacking the Roomba vacuum. That's
arguably a more useful robot, although we'll see how far
we get to either Asimov's visions or Lester Del Rey's
using prototypes such as Aldebaran's.

Or -- heaven forbid -- Fred Saberhagen's.
