Buddy The Robot Wants To Be Your Modern-Day Rosie

Do you guys think this robot can be trusted? It looks cute, but looks can be deceiving, man.

A 32GB Android tablet serves as both its face (which can be re-skinned with five alternatives) and primary input device through which users can program it to perform various behaviors. Programming Buddy's actions is very intuitive: Simply tap and drag action icons onto a digital timeline that dictates what it'll do and when. The tablet can also charge a number of external devices so long as they have a USB plug. As for Buddy itself, the robot automatically recharges using an included docking station, kind of like a Roomba.
