RM's ED-E Educational robot dances, does the robot

Laura June

RM and DACTA are launching a new commercial educational robot. Called ED-E, this fully programmable, PC-compatible bot's got 17 servo motors which enable him to jump, do backflips, head spins, and full-on dance routines. Software for the device allows his moves to be previewed on screen before he performs them. Check check check the video after the break for a full routine from the robot, who -- in our opinion -- isn't teaching anything that couldn't be learned from a viewing of Breakin'. Pricing will be somewhere in the realm of $635 for the robot, software and teaching materials -- no word on availability yet.
