That is a cool, yet simple-looking, robot, isn't it?

The last couple issues of Robot magazine had a complete review of the robot.

The "brain" of that robot can't be on-board can it? The article said they were creating something that could think like the human brain, and later it mentioned information about Public Policy (giving the robot background info)...clearly a package that small isn't going to store that much memory...is it? I see two wireless antenna's...at a distance thinking...haha, it's lost it's mind!
