Humanoid Robots in the Library

NAO-Robot

Imagine browsing the stacks and seeing one of these little bots coming at you! That will be a reality at the Westport Library in Connecticut, now the proud owners of two “NAO Evolution” robots named Vincent and Nancy.

In the article by The Wall Street Journal, executive director Maxine Bleiweis says:
“Robotics is the next disruptive technology coming into our lives and we felt it was important to make it accessible to people so they could learn about it.”

Vincent and Nancy will be making their big debut on Start Wars Reads Day, October 11th. For more info, read the story Coming Soon to the Library: Humanoid Robots at The Wall Street Journal Online.
