Tux Droid : Robot that can Connect To A Linux Os

I made a search on the forum and haven't found anything on the Tux droid.
I believe everyone will find it very amazing.

The tux droid is a robot connected to a computer.

What is it made of ?
- a microphone in the beak
- speakers in the back
=> ability to connect Tux to external speakers

Tux understands TCP/IP. This means you can send instructions to a Tux connected to a remote computer..

The Tux droid is made to communicate with a Linux machine. The hardware is compatible with Windows.Therefore, it is possible to develop an application that allows a Windows OS to send instructions to the Tux droid.

The API of the Tux droid is developed in Python. Tux itself is developped in C processor (personnaly, I don't know what "C processoir" is).

The API is open source. One of the reason the API is open source is to allow every user to play with his/her imagination and add his/her own features. Any Linux user can develop an API according to its desires.

Pre-order price : 79 USD (aprox.61 euros)
Shipped from Belgium.

Release : Next week !!! february 28, 2007

I have seen it in real at the "solutions open source" in Paris (France) in january 2007. It looks great.
It has a microphone in the beak, and speakers in the back. You can use as a microphone, or to do VoIP.
Someone showed me the utility, you type a sentence like "my name is james bond" and choose the language (english or french) and choose the voice (male or female) and tux says it.

outstanding :-)
