    Aldebaran Robotics have launched a new version of their popular robot Nao - Nao Next Gen. Nao is an autonomous, programmable, medium-sized humanoid robot running a custom Linux OS. It is fitted with a new on-board computer, based on the powerful 1.6GHz IntelĀ® AtomTM processor, which is suitable for multi-tasking calculations. It also has two HD cameras that are attached to a field-programmable gate array (FPGA). This set-up allows the simultaneous reception of two video streams, significantly increasing speed and performance in face-and-object recognition, even under poor-lighting conditions.
