Leonardo Robot – Dr Cynthia Breazeal (MIT)

Taken from BBC’s Horizon: Where’s My Robot? (2008) with comedian Danny Wallace. Leonardo is a good example of a non-humanoid style personal robot – very stationery but still expressive! This BBC programme is a good expose of just how far robotics has to go before it matches our media (sci-fi) led expectations such as Teddy from the film A.I.

    My God! This new “Leonardo” toy is sure to be a hot hit this holiday season. He’s like Furby on steroids. I can’t wait ’til he hits the shelves. I imagine Toys R Us is going to order big shipments of Leonardo.
