ASUS EeeBot – Educational Android Robot

android-robotASUS have announced that they are working on EeeBot that is an educational robot designed to work with children that uses the Android OS to run. The robot will be designed to be affordable allowing more people to purchase it and will feature a number of functions such as the ability to interact with humans (or HRI – human robot interaction).

Other features will see it being able to visually and vocally interact through voice and visual technologies. The EeeBot will also be capable of positioning it’s self and will have navigation abilities.

The project won’t be finished any time soon though as ASUS believe it will take around two years to develop the product in to a trial version, so perhaps we can expect a mid 2012 launch at a guess.
