ApriAlpha - Toshiba's New Personal Robot

Toshiba will introduce their Personal Robot Prototype ApriAlpha on this years Robodex 2003 in Japan.

What I gather from the japanese press-release the Robot can recognize up to 100 faces and has built-in speech recognition and a voice synthesizer.

The autonomous robot can communicate via wireless LAN (802.11b), IR and bluetooth with other devices in a networked home.
The built-in Video Camera can also be used to take photos and send them via i-mode to a mobile Phone.
The robot moves around by itself and avoid obstacles automatically.

It kinda looks like a mini R2D2
