Keepon Robot

Check out this new robot made in Kyoto. It moves to the beat and follows eyes so that it seems to be interacting with people. My friend told me that this robot is being used to help autistic children who find it overwhelming to interact with complicated facial movements and body language of adults. With its simple reaction to eyes and to where eyes move, Keepon can help children take steps in beginning to interact with others. - It also can "move to the rhythm" more than most people!
