My interest was driven towards Robotics

When I was just roaming in the internet I saw a video of a nice cute robot Keepon.
It is a yellow rounded robot and just reminds about snowmen that I have heard from the books which I have read in my past times. This robot is designed to perform emotive and attentive with human interactions.
Hideki Kozima of the National Institute of Information and Communication Technology in Kyoto, Japan has developed Keepon.
I heard that Keepons has got five motors, two cameras for the eyes and a microphone for his nose inside his attractive rubber skin.
Being very attractive lovable Keepon has achieved great popularity.

It broke my heart when I heard that Keepon is not offered for sale in general public, otherwise I was planning to buy one to keep on my desk. :(
