The Android OS has a new mascot — a real 4 foot tall walking robot. RT Corporation and Brilliant Service of Japan have created a humanoid robot named RIC, which made its debut at Google Developer Day 2010 in Tokyo. The Android droid is controlled via Wi-Fi with an Android cellphone or tablet. Besides walking, RIC can swing its arms and open the top of its head to show its brains.
RT Corporation was responsible for the robot design and implementation, while Brilliant developed the controlling software. You can see the Adroid robot on the Robot-Dreams website. This YouTube video shows a demo of the robot in action:
