Why you should listen

"The same thing is happening with robots as it did with microcomputers," says Bruno Maisonnier, founder of Aldebaran Robotics. "This means that hundreds of thousands of the young and not so young, curious and open to the future, want to explore a new device/type of tool which should revolutionize the world."

Aldebaran's little Nao robot is accessible and open so that it can serve as a platform for exploration in schools.
