Aldebaran's Nao robot makes RoboCup appearance

Aldebaran Robotics' Nao
robot certainly doesn't seem to be in any rush to take over the world,
but it looks like it's at least making some progress, as evidenced by
its appearance at RoboCup 2007
in Atlanta this week. What's more, the company's just revealed that
it's decided to give Nao some companionship, introducing a new,
slightly smaller model with added sensors, eyes, and "dozens of other
improvements," not to mention a spiffy new red paint job. While
Aldebaran will apparently have more to say about that particular bot
"in the next weeks so," you can check out a video of it in action at
the link below, along with one of the older Nao walking slightly more
steadily than before, though apparently still not able to muster up a kick.
