I have visited her last year, in Osaka, when she (it?) was in the final stage of development before being introduced to the public.
Have you guys seen this one? It is not so cute, but much more functional.(and has better voice too)
The cute one was programmed only to indroduce her(it)self and answer simple questions, but this one I posted also has vision. She can recognize some actions, objects and faces, but none of them can't walk or pick objects or do anything else.
I dont understand why everybody is so excited about those robots. They are still in a very early stage of development and both I and my advisor teacher here in Japan, Mr. Sankai, agree that those androids wont be available for at least 25 years. And when they start selling them it won't be less than $80k(mass production case).
