Okay, I really love gadgets and all but seriously, autonomous machines freak me out. Its just something about a machines seemingly controlling themselves rather than me giving them every little command that just worries me. Old fashioned, I know, but its true. In spite of my silly vendetta against artificial intelligence I think this next little gadget is pretty damn awesome. Aldebaran Robotics of France created this awesome little imitation of life called the NAO Programmable Humanoid Robot. This little guy is about two feet tall, he walks, talks, says “hi!” when you come home from work and can even play a little joke on you! I think this would be a great holiday gift for that tech-savy boyfriend of your or your geeky girlfriend. Take a look at the video below. The final price on this little guy has not yet been release but will be available for public purchase soon.
