Palro (pal + robot) is 15" tall, has 20º of freedom, an integrated camera and is Fuji Soft's latest entry into robotics. The autonomous bot can carry on conversations and is expected to hit the streets mid-March. Add to that an Atom processor and software with plenty of options and a hefty price tag of about $3,300.

Ok, so it runs on Intel's new Atom proc. What are the advantages of doing so over other processors? Is it price? Power? Size? Ease of engineering (hardware and/or software)? There has got to be some advantage, right? It seems there are a lot of walking biped bots out there now a days so whenever a company decides to make another one, there has got to be something more to it than just another walking two legged bot, right? Better AI? Cheaper Cost? Something.
