Ever heard of Keepon?

Keepon and creators

This cute little creature that makes everyone say “I want one!”?

In development for several years, despite the cute look, Keepon is part of a long research on robot-human interaction.

A research started by professor Kozima for therapeutic treatment with autistic kids.
Later, Marek, a Ph.D student from Carnegie Mellin University joined professor Kozima to add interactions with rhythms and music, which effectively made Keepon famous on Internet videos.

Some days ago it was announced that Keepon was made available for purchase to researchers… which probably isn’t your case. 😛

The unit will cost the bargain of $30000 bucks. Gah! Where’s my prized lotery ticket now?

It seems a cheaper popular version will be released later on.
Those who want to know more about this cute fellow, search for more info on GetRobo‘s page.
