Lesson 7: Palro Robot / VIDEO Script

Mai, are you interested in robots?

Not so much but what’s up? Did you find a new toy for your kids for Christmas?

Well, I was reading the tech section of the Japan Times today and I came across an interesting write up about a small robot from Fujisoft called the Palro, short for Pal Robot.

So what’s so cool about it. Can it sing and dance?

As a matter of fact it can dance and talk and even recognize your voice. I was thinking that it might be a good replacement for a pet for you and unlike a cat it won’t need a litter box.

Oh thanks! Just what I need! …. a robot that dances and talks! Can it mix me up a mango smoothy while I surf the net?

Sorry Mai. You’ll have to get your boyfriend to do that!
