Walking Human-Shaped Robot Going on Sale

AP: Walking Human-Shaped Robot Going on Sale
TOKYO (AP) -- A small walking man-shaped robot for home security and entertainment is going on sale in Japan for $5,450.

The 15-inch tall, 5.5 pound robot called nuvo from ZMP Inc. also comes in a fancier $8,200 version with the same functions and a design inspired by lacquer-ware painted on its body...

The link from AP to the Japanese site isn't working. Try this ZMP link instead. Meet Nuvo, e-Nuvo and Pino ver 2. Go to the actual links. They even have MPG files of these bots in action!
