$75,000 Swami robot can be a friend, cause nightmares

Having a tough time holding a conversation with your Roomba? Yeah, us, too. This Swami-head robot will be able to do what previous robots have failed at — being a friend and scholar. This Swami robot comes loaded with "revolutionary" artificial-intelligence software, 30 motors that control the face, small cameras in the eyes and its own laptop that powers the creepy guy.

This Swami-head robot will be able to recognize individuals, hold conversations, create friendships and even give advice. I wonder if this creepy head would accept advice? He really needs some facial grooming, and for $75,000 you'd think he would care a little more about his appearance.
