“Even among robots, QRIO’s capabilities are unique.
As well as walking on two legs, if QRIO does lose its balance,
it reacts to protect itself against the impact.
And after it falls, QRIO checks front, back, left and right, and gets back up, by itself.
Its intellectual capabilities allow QRIO to distinguish people’s faces and voices.
And QRIO can communicate with people based on its own judgments,
expressing its feelings through movements, conversation, and the use of its lights”…. <Sony’s QRIO Web Site>
