Aldebaran Robotics was founded in 2005 by Bruno Maisonnier who has been working with humanoid robots for 25 years. It is the first french company dealing with humanoid robots and now has about 80 members. In this video you can see their first and very popular product, robot called Nao.
Nao is humanoid robot, that has been created for educational purposes. Nao is something like platform for teaching robots. It has user friendly programming environment. They say it is very easy to start working with this robot because they also gives you special educational kits.
Check out this robot video where you can see that Nao is robot who can do lot of stuff, has many sensors..and simply looks really cute and entertaining. It is not cheap robot, but since you can program it to do almost anything, it is really great for robotics classes. I'm sure that robots we all will have at our homes in future will be somehow very similar to this one.
