Palro Runs on Atom Processor

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.

Robots in general and androids in particular have been of my personal interest since I saw films like Forbidden Planet for the first time at the age of eight... a much more sophisticated bot than Gort in The Day The Earth Stood Stll. Initially Robby had a man inside like C3PO in Starwars or Maria in that awesome early SF film entitled Metropolis... then came the turn of Asimo and a number of humanoids. I could also watch other equally interesting machines at movies, TV, magazines & Internet, and would like to receive regular written and illustrated info about them in the form of brochures, books, downloadable computer files and perhaps one day, if I can get enough money, a real robot. Thank you for your kind attention to my comment.

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.

Okay it walks and talks, I'm doubtful it could do much more.
