Cheap variant of NAO humanoid robot
When you watch the video and the robot, there are a lot of similarities with the NAO robot. Both in terms of appearance and functions. Only the robot is offered for $729,- while the NAO robot still costs around 5,000 Euro.
Admittedly the video looks great but is not realistic as far as we are concerned. Especially the feeling that the makers give that Alpha 2 is everywhere and nowhere present to support the residents is not realistic. In any case, the NAO does not apply to wandering around in a house on these feet.
