Speecys shows of SPC-101C face-recognizing robot

After letting its MI-RAI-RT (a.k.a SPC-101) robot wander around aimlessly for a while, Speecys has now finally decided to let the bot have a look at the world, adding a cyclops-style camera to its new SPC-101C model. That'll apparently not only let it recognize faces, but expressions as well (we presume that's what's going on in the picture above). Otherwise, the robot appears to be same singing, dancing, and e-mail-reading bot we've come to know and fear. Those willing to let the thing in their house will apparently be able to get one (in Japan) on September 1st for ¥336,000, or just under $3,000. Be sure to check out the read link below for some more pics and a few videos.
