Toyota robots

The latest models of robots displayed in Tokyo, particularly by Toyota, show how far we have come in robotics, but also demonstrate that there is a long road ahead of us. For instance, the robot that plays the violin is not even close to what a 6-year old kid can do with a violin. Similarly, it is great that a robot can sign an autograph or talk, but again we have to go much farther before robots can become good companions.
