Like the idea of Aibo, but feel it isn't anthropomorphic enough? Now Honda is selling an Aibo-like walking robot that recognizes faces and voices, shakes hands, walks up and down stairs, and recites prerecorded information. And best of all, it's about the size of, say, a 10-year-old. Who needs a real kid when you can get a robot?
Not, perhaps, as cute as the kid in A.I., but still awfully cute.
