All Your Base Are Belong To U-ROBO

Korean robotics house ED has developed a house-trained robot with questionable uses. It packs a 1GHz Intel Pentium processor and 512MB RAM under the hood. The unit also features WiFi, ethernet, USN 2.0 ZigBee and RFID, so a wide range of connectivity options are covered.

Users can control the U-ROBO via its 6.4-inch programmable touchscreen display, or through voice recognition. It includes motion and light sensors and can move nimbly with its eight-axis motor.

No word on pricing or availability, but that’s OK because I’m still not really sure what it does.
