REETI: the media center PC that's also a robot

Disappointed by the lack of companionship offered by your current media center PC? Then you might be interested in this so-called REETI unit developed by France's Robopec. You see, not only is it a full-fledged media PC, it's also a robot -- one capable of displaying a range of emotions, no less. The company's actually been working on this one for a little while now, but it just recently made its public debut at the Innorobo trade show, where it showed off its ability to track people with its eyes and respond to both speech and touch. Still no word on availability, but it seems like the company is, in fact, planning to sell them at some point. Until then, you can check out a pair of videos after the break, including some shocking evidence of where REETI really came from.
