Sony upgrades QRIO with some improvements

QRIO Sony's upgraded robot does some pretty cool things, QRIO is launched in competition with Honda's ASIMO robot which was displayed not even two weeks back. The little bot can now enjoy all sorts of box related activities, such as carry, stacking, and recognizing dropped or fallen boxes, thanks to better articulated arms and a new “third eye” that keeps track of stuff. QRIO can also now keep track of colors, faces and other objects, bringing him closer to Asimo in that regard, who could already recognize and track faces. [via Engadget]
