Watching TV today in between chores and making Flash Drives
for the LUG and one of the PBS shows featured a new Japanese
robot in the form of Atomu aka Astroboy. He has facial recognition
and can pull down further information from the Cloud to aid the
built in AI. So far it is confined to tabletop use as a communications
device with a built in video screen and its own voice and hearing.
It can show old shows on its minute video screen.

Thank heaven no built-in jets.(yet)

This was the last segment of a show that featured
mechanical power assistance for leg movement for recuperative
exercise. Battery powered of course. Then a device that
converts a regular wheelchair to a powered chair like a
mobility scooter.
