You know, in the future, people will shout from their rooftops: "A robot! A robot! My kingdom for a robot!" Ok, maybe not, but with apologies to our favorite playwright, robots seem to be everywhere these days. We just came across this video of a very child-like Robonova that drops to its knees, wields a mean marker, and draws a crude happy face, and then scratches it out. Not the most useful of robots, but a good first step. Next thing you know, they'll be teething and speaking in complete -- oh, wait. Maybe Robonova and Actroid should get together, producing a robot that would recite our RSS feed and draw the Engadget logo. Now that would be a robot.
