Hanson Robotics Professor Einstein

The Professor Einstein robot is a scaled-down version of Hanson Robotics' Einstein HUBO android.

Professor Einstein is a 14.5" Wi-Fi-connected robot geared toward educating and entertaining its users with the likeness of the late genius Albert Einstein. It displayed a variety of human expressions, relies on several sensors and a voice interface, and its AI capabilities could make it a must-have for the home and educational markets.

Hanson will launch a Kickstarter for the Professor Einstein robot in late January. By the way, we're giving away a Professor Einstein robot this month. Enter the contest.
