Pal Technology’s REEM-B humanoid shown off in Abu Dhabi

da Engadget di Darren Murph

We heard that Pal Technology’s REEM-B
would be "fully revealed in Q1 2008," and while things seem to be
running ever-so-slightly behind, we can’t gripe too much. The creature
was recently shown off in Abu Dhabi, where onlookers swooned and
secretly crushed on the totally macho being. Its creators have also
announced that the 1.47-meter tall robot was the last prototype to be
formed, as it has plans for a commercial venture "in the near future."
The overriding goal for REEM-B is to have it act as a service bot for
the elderly and disabled, and considering that it has no qualms
reacting to voice commands and "engaging in simple conversations," we’d
say it’s pretty well suited to do just that. Check out the video after
the break to see it in action.
