NAO for Now

I had so much fun yesterday when I met Nao, the robot from Aldebaran. He listens, he talks, he walks and he even dances! His simple facial features and responses suit children with Autism Spectrum disorder and they easily interact with Nao. I learned a bit of the programming and it was simple to create a routine with the multiple prepared actions. High school students would love to program him! In fact, there are competitions to see who can create the best dance for Nao.

Check out his features at www.youtube.com/watch?v=2STTNYNF4lk and see a group of robots perform part of the Michael Jackson’s Thriller dance. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHJf365p_zw

 

Happy Learning!
