Don’t miss today’s Engadget Show at 6:30pm !

Hello everybody !

Today, at 6:30 pm, Nao will make it’s Show from the Times Center of New York City!

And Jérôme Monceaux himself will show you how easy it is to create a new behavior for Nao.

The Engadget Show

Here is the news from Engadget:

You will be eable to see the show though this Feed:

And don’t forget, if you like Nao, Linux, C++ or Python, there’s a Developer Program for that!

Nao developer Program opening today

Dear all,

As I presented to you few days ago the Nao Developer Program was ready to be released (see this post).

Today is the day!!!!!! This evening we are sending the first invitations.

You need an invitation from a developer member to be part of this adventure.  The price of the Nao Developer Program is 3600€ which includes your own robot and everything you need to get started!

Where can you find your invitation ? Have a look at the main robotics forums and blogs, I’m sure that you can find invitations there.

Let me give you an overview of the description pages.

Nao ! bring me a beer!

Nao : “there is no beer anymore master, do you want a coca cola?”

Help to Orebro University, Nao can now bring a bottle. With the help of his robotics friend : the fridge ;)

Description extracted from the youtube page :

This video demonstrates the integration of the humanoid robotic platform Nao within a Network Robot System (NRS) application. The specific scenario of interest takes place in a smart home environment; the task being that of bringing a can of soda from a fridge to a human user. We use this concrete
scenario to evaluate how the performance of such a robot can be affected by being embedded inside an intelligent domestic environment. This study points out that, by cooperating with different components on the network the overall performance of the robot is increased.

Robot makes ethical decisions ?

Nice to see Nao on a such interesting project. Do not expect to much of the term “ethical decision” ;) but Susan and Michael Anderson think and progress on this wide and complex subject. Article found  on : discovery (thanks to JC)

Nao Developer Program coming soon – got your invitation?

Robotics will be the next phenomenon of the digital era and NAO from Aldebaran Robotics its first incarnation as a humanoid robot. I’m sure that it will be the next revolution as personal computer was 30 years ago.

We, a group of pioneers,  want to be part of the adventure and pave the way to the future. We want to combine our skills and creativity to animate NAO and bring him to robotics life. Many challenges are waiting for us :

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Social interaction and Droid User Interface
  • Autonomous Navigation
  • Vision and audio recognition
  • Humanoid robot behaviors
  • Evolutionary robotics

In order to achieve this very ambitious and motivating plan, we have joined a Developer Program in which a limited number of selected talented developers around the world will create and share  source code and  applications for NAO, which could be, later, marketed on NAO online store. For that, these key developers will be able to purchase a NAO  and receive a priviledged support from Aldeberan’s team.

To apply, you need to be invited by a member of the community. Invitations come from someone in your network of developers. I’ve got a few to give out, just get in touch ;)

Tutorial 1 – Hello world

Hi everybody,

A new version of Choregraphe is going to be released: 1.8.

New features:

  • Now it is possible to add embedded files to the choregraphe project
  • the first Nao’s behaviors manager is released
  • you can add properties to a box

In this tutorial, my goal is to give an overview of choregraphe basic features.

Top developers wanted!

Bonjour! Hi! Ni Hao! Hola! Ognacgnouc!

Let me introduce myself. I’m Jerome, a senior developer at Aldebaran Robotics in Paris. My company is the inventor of the world famous NAO humanoid robot which has been in the news recently.

I was the designer of Choregraphe and NaoQi (from the Nao’s SDK). Now, I’m leading the team who is working on the Nao’s life and preparing the future general offer.

You may have seen NAO dancing at the World Expo in Shanghai?

I’m part of a team of developers around the world who are crazy about humanoid robotics and programming. I want to reach out to the best developers who share the same passion and who want to be part of this community.

If this speaks to you, let me know!

In the next few weeks, more info coming so stay tuned…

June 2010, back to Shanghai World Exposition. Now, we are ready to make them dance….

[photos] 3 weeks at Shanghai World Expo – April 2010

During three weeks, few of them had install 32 Naos on the Shanghai World Exposition 2010.

Lets find here, photos from the team at work (or not).
