He drew a crowd where he went at JavaOne. And only being 22.5 inches/573 mm tall, that's pretty impressive.

Nao (pronounced now) is an autonomous, programmable humanoid robot developed by Aldebaran Robotics, a French robotics company. Over 200 academic institutions worldwide have made use of the robot. In this video from JavaOne, Nicolas Rigaud shows off the NAO robot which you can control with Java.
