Life With PALRO – Remembering Objects and Places

Fuji Soft Inc has published a couple of new videos of their educational humanoid robot platform, PALRO, demonstrating its ability to remember specific objects and places. In the first example, PALRO remembers a location and what it did there (in this case, dancing). In the second example, PALRO remembers the pink ball and asks to play with it.
