Archos’ vision includes a child-sized robot

Archos, the creator of tablets and PMPs, has made a somewhat cryptic announcement recently. Apparently their work in the Android arena was in fact development for work on an actual android, of the I, Robot variety. The CEO of the mobile multimedia manufacturer announced that they intend to keep developing tablets along with a “child-sized robot, sold for less than €300.

While specifics have yet to be revealed, the kid-bot would be an integral part of the home experience. Home automation was another term thrown around by the CEO who said his own company was a genetic anomaly in the European market. Well, for now, all we have to do is sit back on our couches and wait for Archos to figure out how robots can grab you a beer and the paper.  An android powered by Android? Yes, please.
