It came, of course, by way of the folks at Aldebaran Robotics who brought a trio of their fifth-generation Nao bi-peds to bust a groove. The outfit’s James Dietrich said that while there are over 10,000 of the friendly little ‘bots in use in some 70 countries, there are a more than a few things holding us back from having Rosie from The Jetsons in our homes.
