palro, fujui soft, robot, japaneseA new hobby type robot called Palro from Japanese company Fuji Soft has been introduced. This cute robot will cost around $3,300 and stands 15″ tall.

Palro has 20 DOF, 4 microphones, a speaker, camera, 3 axis gyro sensor, 4 pressure sensors and an LED array in its head.

Palro is also able to recognize and respond to voice commands and can also download new programs such as dance routines wirelessly.  If you take Palro’s cool looks and all of its capabilities into account, we think this is a pretty cool robot for the price.
