Robotinho Guides German Students

Would I be the only one thinking that the University of Bonn's Robotinho looks and sounds a bit pervy? Maybe it's a good thing that he is speaking German and we can't translate. Placed atop 4 Roombas 530s, a Robotis Dynamixel RX-64 servo is used for steering. The bot guides a group of kids around the Deutches Museum and introduces them to Steffy, Dynamaid and several of the other exhibits. Some of the kids seem a bit skeptical and seem to have as short an attention span as they would if the guidebot was human.
