Wow that is such an advancement in robotics. About a year ago they had problems with humanoid robots trying to pick up a ball, now they got one that does so much more.

To program such a robot is so unbelievably difficult. QRIO is so cute :laugh:!

The wireless technology built into it is probably so it can interface with Skynet :lol:

I wonder if they programmed in the 3 Laws of Robotics?

Or maybe they're saving that for future revisions, after several people are murdered by their toy robots! :p

What you know you can't explain,

You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

Hmmm

it's incredible + very cool..
but at the same time, one part of me just wants to smash it

a robot to live and play with me? Why? All this research for what -- a pal? Is its purpose really just for my amusement - an inorganic pet whose purpose is my satisfaction? Iuno bout you guys, but I'd say No Thanks

I was reading around and the speculations are it will cost 10,000-50,000$ (oooookay) until about 2006.
