Korean company KornTech’s one-meter tall robot, Rogun, can walk (which is actually trickier than it looks), learn to recognize its masters’ faces and voices, and has a 7″ LCD in its stomach so that your children can think of it as a walking, talking TV. It can even route video phone calls through to its midriff if you like the idea of bending over to talk to people who aren’t even in your house. It may not really cost a million dollars; translating dollar figures can be tricky, but given what it does, it probably is pretty expensive for how cute it is. [GT]
