As if mini humanoid PALRO wasn’t awesome enough already, he now can speak English, too. I always thought he was being marketed as a “male” robot, but Tokyo-based maker Fuji Soft gave PALRO a female voice (not that it really matters).

Technically, you are still looking at a robot that features 20 joints, five mics, voice recognition, mono speakers, a 0.3MP camera, Wi-Fi, a USB port, an Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, 1GB internal memory, 4GB flash memory, and a set of sensors. PALRO stands 39.8cm tall, weighs 1.6kg.

Here’s the promo video in which you can hear PALRO conversing with a human in English:
