Via Engadget:

The final version of Korea's planned army of networked domestic robots may look nothing like this prototype, but it's a start. The model is designed to do such mundane tasks as answering the door and playing media files. And, yes, it can connect to the net and download orders from the mothership. So don't let that smiling face fool you. As the bard said, one can "smile and smile and be a villain." Or in this case, a networked robot under the control of an AI managed by the government or a large corporation. As if there's a difference.

want it much smarter than that, though.
