Nao Humanoid Service Robot
Developed by Aldebaran Robotics, the petite Nao robot is powered by an Intel Atom processor for educational and research purposes. With two cameras inside its little head, the Nao can see, hear, speak and commuincate with humans.
Some examples of where this device could be useful include the automobile industry, where it can be used to test reactions in different situations, as well as treating children with autism.
