NAO: programmable robot, autonomous and interactive robot NAO is a little character with a unique combination of hardware and software: he consists of sensors, motors and software driven by NAOqi, our dedicated operating system. It gets its magic from its programming and animation. Movement libraries are available through graphics tools such as Choregraphe and other advanced programming software.They allow users to create elaborate behaviors, access the data acquired by the sensors, and control the robot... to give it life! Imagination reignsAldebaran is putting an open and accessible, high-performance robot onto the market to serve as an exploration platform for anyone who wants to create new applications using all of NAO's capabilities.Thanks to its programming, NAO can evolve: the more behaviors, content and applications developed for it, the greater its capacity to surprise you every day.

A common opinion has emerged over the past 20 years that defines a robot as a) able to respond to external stimuli and b) have its functions reprogrammed. The word robot actually means “slave” but here at Orbotix, we believe the intention has always been to recreate life. And life a) responds to the world and b) learns and adjusts its behavior. That’s why we’ve built Sphero to be even more than a multi-platform gaming system.
