…it can run, as you see in the film-clip, it is reportedly able to climb up & down stairs, & responds to 50 different commands in Japanese.
Nifty.

You were expecting maybe windows xp? I can see it now... blue screen of death.... (not that it happens much anymore, but it still happens) Operating system locks up/glitches, hundreds killed or injured, news reel at eleven.... lol
