New Video of Nao, a Linux-based Robot

A French company called Aldebaran Robotics has released several video clips of a new robot they're developing, called Nao. They claim their humanoid robot will include voice recognition, vision, speech synthesis, "emotional expressions", a WiFi connections, and will be based on Linux. Nao stands 22 inches high and has 23 degrees of freedom. The exterior shell of the robot was created by Parisian designers Thomas Knoll and Erik Arlen. The robot's shell will be customizable by the user. The robot will also support the URBI (Universal Real-time Behavior Interface) scripting language. This probably means they'll integrate Gostai's proprietary URBI interpreter. The URBI the SDK libraries are Free Software licensed under the GNU GPL, however, so we can probably look forward to a free implementation of URBI in the near future if it gains popularity.
