Hello Kitty Robot Video

Image00546
Hello Kitty is famous the world over. In Japan they sell a Hello Kitty robot that can actually interact with people and has a fairly large vocabulary of words the robot recognizes.

When the robot was first introduced the sales price was around USD$5,000, but recently they have been seen on sale for under half that price. Some companies are working on modifications to the robot so that it can be used in place of a company lobby receptionist or greeter.
