Thank you very much, Mr. Roboto. Both Honda and Sony have unveiled the newest versions of their humanoid robots. Honda favours a more practical design, while Sony's is geared for entertainment. Having just watched AI the other night, I'm wondering when and if people would want to have one around the house.
WARNING: there's an operating system problem in the Sony AIBO Robotic dog. If you have one... try not to admit to it in public. :-)
