nuvo: Robot For Sale! Robot For Sale!

The 39 cm. high, 2.5 kg robot dubbed as "nuvo" is now available! A limited number (actually 100 units) will be available for sale outside of Japan!

The nuvo can respond to verbal command (but it has to be in Japanese) and in order to fully utilize nuvo, one has to be content with a brief English instructions but complete documentation is available -- in Japanese.

At US$7,000 (approximately Php 350,000) for the base model and US$ 10,000 (around Php 50,000) for the "Japanism" line, I think I'll opt for a 2nd hand Toyota car... :(
