Cutest dancing robot

I came across this in my robotics class during my last semester in college. At the time we saw this robot, we all thought it to be amazing, cute, and really funny. Keepon was originally developed by Hideki Kozima at the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) in Kyoto, Japan. The purpose of the robot was to study social development by interaction with children. It is amazing how this small, yellow robot can mesmerize one with its dancing.

Reading for fun...again!

It has been really long since I last read for fun. As far as I remember, it was the summer after freshman year in college that I read my last book for fun, Dan Brown's The DaVinci Code. Now, after graduation, I have more free time in my hands to go back to reading for fun, and I have been taking full opportunity of this free time. 

I just finished reading three books: Waiting for the Barbarians, Blink, and An Unquiet Mind. All of these books were great; I really enjoyed reading these books, taking in each page and somewhat finding myself closely relating to some of the ideas in them, and found it difficult to simply put them down. For anyone who is looking for an enjoyable book to read while cuddled up in bed, I would recommend taking up any one of these.
