R2, Do You Remember???

I wonder if it works better than the voice-activated R2 robot they pawned on the unsuspecting fandom.

This first version of Talos was designed to carry out several simple functions. The original concept was to use the robot for telepresence operations, like guarding the lab at night. The robot can retrieve an object and bring it to a person; it can respond to several simple voice commands, like "follow me" or "shake hands"; it can be controlled by a remote application on a tablet computer; and it can dance, as an entertainment function.

I also hope you can program it to say "OK" in the Abe's Oddysee voice when you tell it to follow you.
