The MyPal Robot is a friendly companion for young children. It has two versions, one shaped like a cute boy and the other a pretty girl. MyPal moves through wheels in the base. There is a six inch tablet on its chest that runs the Android operating system and enables the android community to develop applications for MyPal. An important feature is support for natural language dialog designed for children.
